So he turns into drawn towards becoming a member of the Victory Project. We don’t see how he first traps his spouse on this VR hell, however we’ve got to imagine that he drugged her and should maintain drugging her every day to maintain her trapped within the tech. We are later instructed that each one the lads are chargeable for “caring for their wives” (though it’s horrifically recommended that among the ladies in Victory are randomly equipped by the undertaking since Jack selected to produce his “personal spouse”). Upkeep would presumably additionally embrace feeding and even placing wives into diapers. But once more, the film glosses over the messier particulars.
Jack later rationalizes to himself and Alice (when she learns the reality) that that is by some means all for her, that she is overworked and wishes a greater life… that they want a greater life. Frank’s reply, trapping ladies in a simulated “good” male-dominated world whereas depriving them of their actual lives, appeals to Jack. Alice is understandably outraged that he would take away her company, her life, and her capacity to make her personal decisions.
When the lads in Victory go to “work,” they exit the simulation themselves and return to no matter they do in the true world—in Jack’s case, he has to earn cash to pay Frank to stay within the simulation, though we don’t know precisely what that job is. And he takes care of Alice, her bodily being, anyway, who lies hypnotized on their mattress, hooked as much as a machine, her thoughts perpetually in Victory.
What Happens When Alice Goes Back to Victory?
After the shock remedy seemingly resets Alice’s thoughts and wipes her reminiscences of her actual life, she returns to Victory, seemingly pleased and again to regular. She is cooking and cleansing at house, carrying her glamorous little gown, and ready for Jack to get again from work. But when he will get house, he begins buzzing a music that triggers Alice’s reminiscences once more, and so they come flooding again.
This time she’s completed with Victory for actual, and he or she intends to go away. She and Jack wrestle, and he or she smashes a glass over Jack’s head, which for some purpose kills him (we additionally study that for those who die in Victory, you die in the true world, though it’s not clear why that occurs since Victory isn’t actual). Bunny enters the home, sees what has occurred, and tells Alice she has to run earlier than they arrive and get her, which can nearly actually imply her loss of life. Bunny, you see, has at all times identified the reality.
Why Does Bunny Stay?
While we don’t get to know Bunny very effectively, she actually comes throughout as a queen bee of the wives and the central data hub for all of the native gossip. She can also be fiercely supportive of their life-style in Victory, which makes it all of the extra inexplicable that she has identified all alongside what Victory actually was.
