The conclusion of Look Both Ways is described
What happened after splitting Natalie’s life into two realities?
Aside from Kahiu’s decision to portray two choices in a woman’s life in Look Both Ways, there’s no secret science that explains why Natalie’s existence splits into two worlds.
The events surrounding Natalie’s disclosure of her pregnancy to Gabe, the child’s father and a friend, and her parents take up most of the screen time after the couple split.
Regarding Natalie’s choice, Gabe noted, “I support your choice.” On the other hand, Natalie’s parents were outraged by the information. They were both worried about their daughter’s future and angry that she had decided to keep the child. Savage, who played Natalie’s mother, expressed concern that the incident could prevent the parents from living their lives to the fullest.
“What are our plans? Do you keep naked Sundays? and furnishings with sharp edges? We wanted to visit Barcelona the following year.” As she and her husband discussed the way forward, Natalie’s mother expressed her frustration. They finally came to terms with their daughter’s decision to put motherhood before her job after a day of teasing, and Natalie and Gabe moved home with them.
Set in a parallel universe, Cara, played by Dee, and Natalie relocated to Los Angeles to pursue their careers as animators. Jake and Natalie met when Natalie took a job at a company run by a person she liked (Nia Long) (played by Corenswet). They got along well and made the decision to live together.
Gabe was by Natalie’s side the entire time she gave birth to Rosie. Gabe initially stayed with Natalie and her parents to help with Rosie’s care, but soon left her and moved into his own apartment.
Natalie turned down his offer to move in with him. Instead, Natalie advised Gabe to start dating again. She later found out that Miranda was Gabe’s new girlfriend and she was extremely disturbed. After Gabe told Natalie about his engagement to Miranda, things got worse.
At the same time, we saw how Natalie’s attempts to win over her boss failed, as he criticized her for her unoriginal and uninspired work and advised her to develop her own style. Jake and Natalie ended their relationship when their intention to move in was delayed by Jake’s six-month business trip. The bad network and the distance could only allow it so far.
Dejected, Natalie decided to quit her job and go back to live with her parents.
Did Look Both Ways give Natalie what she was looking for?
The parallel universes seemed to intersect, if not converge, along the line. Regardless of the support they received, both Natalies made decisions to take control of their lives.
Both began developing their unique concepts as animators. Mother Natalie was inspired to write the graphic novel Night Owl by her daughter’s nightly routine. In a parallel universe, she produced the animated short film Indigo.
In both worlds, Natalie’s films received positive reviews and were entered into some of the most prestigious film festivals. Jake and Gabe were also reunited with Natalie in their own universes.
Eventually, Natalie went back to the toilet in both worlds, where she was confronted with the defining factor in her life: her pregnancy. Instead of aligning, the realities seemed content with how things turned out.
