Ending Explained

Well, the film is one prime example of open-ending films, and the ending of the film is open for all theories from the audience. You may have your own theory; we may have our own. Here, we are going to tell you about our theory of the ending of the film.

From the beginning of the film itself, Eileen has a soft corner for Lee Polk, and she always watches him. There are high chances that Rebecca is not a living character, but it is just a creation of Eileen’s mind. Eileen starts developing feelings for Lee, and to help him, she imagines a character of Rebecca to get confidence and power. When Rebecca comes into the life of Eileen, she starts behaving differently. There are high chances that Eileen wants to get rid of her dad and her dull life, and at the same time, she wants to do justice with Lee. Thus, she visits Lee Polk’s house, kills Rita (Lee Polk’s mother), and then puts all the blame on her father and then leaves the city to live all alone.

Although there are many loopholes in this theory, this fits most to the story. If you have any other theory about the film, please let us know in the comments. For more news, reviews, and explainers, stay tuned with us.
