I can't say who I disliked more, Levi for being a violent, selfish jerk or Sloane for agreeing to be his personal punching bag & simpering whore. ..Show More » Levi (28) and Sloane (29) were supposed to be educated professionals who work at an advertising agency. Levi called all women including Sloane "girls" and flirted with every female as if he just discovered the opposite sex. Sloane allowed her sexual attraction to Levi to kill most of her brain cells and endanger her physical safety.
Levi didn't enjoy sex unless he was in total control (insecure much?) and he was inflicting pain & humiliation on his partners, proving his lack of humanity and disdain for women. Levi started hitting Sloane in bed, then progressed to other cruel and degrading activities. How insulting to Sloane - she wasn't exciting enough to hold his interest unless she was willing to demean herself.
I didn't understand why Sloane had such alarming low self-esteem. It was sad and depressing, listening as Sloane stated her belief that women ware too weak to handle being strong & competent in both their professional & personal lives. No, she had to choose one or the other, then remain subservient to men either at home or work. Sloane didn't realize that genuinely strong men protect, not harm women.
