That is, until Leonora sees her husband in the company of a younger woman. She is an architect named Xenia, and Christian is with her at a party organized by his company. The film thus begins to look like one of the oldest stories in the book. Except, that is, for Leonara to make a decision right there on the spot. The woman who gave up her career for love decides she’s not going to be the woman left behind.

“To me, Dear Adults it’s a dark and twisted, compelling yet sexy film about the terrible things we men and women can do to each other if we push it too far,” Rothenborg says in Netflix press materials for the film. “It’s about the very fine line between love and hate – and how jealousy and bitterness can bring out the worst in all of us.”
