The last five minutes of the movie, seeing her come to terms with what she has done fills you with such sadness and a haunting dread. You can feel the regret through the screen but also there is a certain hopefulness about the situation, hopefulness stemming from her breaking away from the mundaneness of her life. Whatever happens after this, it'll sure as shit not be boring like before, and I think she would rather take that over being a slave to her routine.

Also the whole scene where she remakes coffee, I felt that in my soul.
