The Divorcee (1930). When a woman discovers that her husband has been unfaithful to her, she decides to respond to his infidelities in kind.
Norma Shearer is remarkable in this film. Emotive and vulnerable and fierce in a way few actresses were of this era. She allowed so much to show in her features and her body language. She’s really the star of this compelling, albeit small film too. The plot barely feels like enough to sustain the a movie, and luckily they don’t drag it out, resulting in a short, sharp character study with a fair dose of romance. 8/10.
