Watched this last night with my wife. We have 4 young children, so can relate to what it takes to raise them. I couldn't help but chuckle at the irony in every scene where they showed (almost beat you over the head with it) the mom "dumping" the child off to the nanny/maid when things got a bit crazy, or a diaper needed changed, or they were crying. "What's it feel like to raise a child, when you're own child's at home looked after by somebody else". Is't that pretty much the standard/norm in real life for Hollywood today? What's changed?
I also agree and thought that Jessica Chastain really stood out WAY above the others in this movie. Why no awards considerations for her performance? I had no idea what to expect from her character. Thought she really owned every scene. The others seemed to just fall in the typical cookie cutter portrayal of all privileged=evil, non-privileged=sympathetic. As noted above, borderline stereotypical.
