Storyboard Text

  • At Grand Isle, where Edna Pontellier and her family spend summer, Mrs. Pontellier is filled with anguish and frustration at her life.
  • I don't know what came over me, but I just needed to cry.
  • Edna opens up to her good friend, Adèle Ratignolle, and talks about all the events and feelings going on in her life.
  • This summer has been a very enlightened one. I have spent most days with Robert and have grown very fond of him. I enjoy our talks together. This view reminds me of when I was a little girl running in a field in Kentucky. This entire summer has been like that day. I, running around impulsively.
  • Im moving to Mexico
  • As Robert announces his departure, Edna is in utter shock. She does not know how she will spend her days with out Robert.
  • Tonight!
  • When is he leaving?
  • When the summer ends the Pontelliers go back to their home at New Orleans. Mr. Potellier visits the family physician, Dr. Mandalet
  • I am worried about my wife she is not acting like herself. She is not doing her household chores. She has always been distant, but this time is different.
  • Do not worry, Leonce, just give her time and space.
  • I really hope she is not having an affair with Alcèe Arobin 
  • Edna's affair with Alcèe Arobin was nothing more than lust and fulfilment, but with Robert is different. She longs for him
  • I am so happy you are here. I missed you so much. 
  • I love her, but I do not think this is right. She is married to another man, and she is not willing to marry me.
  • After Robert leaves her again, Edna goes back to Grand Isle where she takes off her clothes, swims out to sea, realizes she is too far, and gives up.
  • Léonce, Arobin, and Robert do not matter, but my children they truly will suffer. I love my children, but I cannot give my life for them.
