Agniezka Holland allows us a brief moment before her final fade out in which to see her Catherine Sloper (Jennifer Jason Leigh) for what she has become - someone who can be trusted to uphold her dignity, to survive scathed but on her feet. Someone who can extract contentment, even enjoyment from a humble lot. Ward off resentment and sustain peace of mind. Someone who can be trusted to suffice and go on.
