It is a temptation to make an easy villain of Leonce in the novel, but he is simply a male chauvinist, which was not an uncommon role in his society (Skaggs 88). Chopin was trying to address society as a whole, while the movie turns Leonce into the bully. Only the scenes where Leonce is angry with Edna are shown, leaving out his confusion and concern for her. The movie shows Leonce scolding Edna for neglecting the children, demanding her to come inside instead of sleep in the hammock, and becoming angry with her when he finds she has skipped her reception day. It does not show his genuine concern for her which he confides to his doctor or his confusion over her behavior.

In the first two acts we have little sympathy for Lady Macbeth as Shakespeare only provides the audience with her vindictive exterior, at this time we cannot see what she is truly thinking and feeling. It is only as the play progresses that we understand WHY she turns out to be the way that she is, that she has a very ambitious character and so enforces that upon her husband.
