Written and directed by Catherine Corsini.  Starring Kristin Scott Thomas. 2009.

This film, along with I Am Love and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, is included in the Discourse Parlor Womanhood’s Escape from the Reproductive Model.

Suzanne of Leaving exists within a reproductive model of womanhood which, until this present moment (when the survival of our species is no longer at threat from any life form other than ourselves) has been the essential model.  The way.  The desired & optimal endpoint of standard, majority womanhood. 

The origins of this model branch from a most ancient male insecurity (can he trust loving the son you birthed to be his own?) which conceives of woman as body, only and entombs our gift for birthing within the greater need of assuring paternity; within a greater need to secure the hard fought battle (against other males) to win certainty of male lineage of blood, position, property.
