Does perfection equal happiness? Imagine a world in which everything was pleasant all the time, but there was no real emotion or feeling behind the happiness. Thus is the world of the Stepford wives. In the movie of the same name, Joanna Eberhard (Nicole Kidman) suffers a nervous breakdown after she is fired from her job as a top television network executive.
