                                                      represent this. This character totally
                                                      juxtaposes Betty.
As you can see Wilhelmina's
house is neat, tidy and
expensive. Through the mise
en scene we can see the
representation of the social
class. Obviously upper class is
represented here not only
through the opulent apartment
but the clothes as well.
There is no family scene here
showing independence.

                                  As you can see Betty’s house is
                                  very different. The house is messy
                                  and not in the best of conditions. It
                                  shows the middle/lower class. The
                                  clothes also represent this, the dad
                                  is in his work uniform and the
                                  others are in normal everyday
                                  As one can see a family orientated
                                  scene is set here.
