Three Dysfunctional Women Characters

Nicole Kidman as Margot in Margot at the Wedding. Having an extremely low sense of self-worth, she only feels alive, and tries to heal her scars, by hurting others.

Laura Linney as Wendy in The Savages. Wendy is also deeply unhappy. But she tries to heal her scars, and to regain a sense of worth, by desperately trying to be good to others. Causes misery despite her intentions.

Jane Adams as Joy Jordan in Happiness. She, a morass of compassion, misery and low self worth, can't seem to find anything which gives her a sense of joy, ironically.
