Shifting Villains

In the movies, when a couple breaks up and one wants to stay together, the one who wants to stay together is portrayed as the villain. That is quite a switch in attitudes from a century ago. That partner is portrayed as controlling, violent and psychotic. Rarely is one who leaves portrayed as the villain. They leave without notice, taking everything in the house not nailed down, leaving no note, to run off with a younger lover.
