and this is the exact moment his heart breaks

The Apartment is about this guy,Jack Lemmon,who’s a bachelor and has an apartment down-town which he lends to 4 of his superiors at work when they want to cheat on their wives and back mistresses or hookers or whatever.All these guys are executives or pretty high up the ladder you think they could spend a few dollars on a motel or hotel room but no they just use the guys.They don’t even pay him a cent either,they just dangle the carrot of a promotion in front of him.All this coming and goings and rowdy noise from his apartment makes his neighbours think he’s a dog and is no good and as nice a guy as he is he plays along with it.Baxter really is a kind guy and seems pretty nice and doesn’t seem to deserve all this shit he keeps getting fed.Baxter falls for the elevator girl at work and tries to make a move and arranges a date with her.The same night his boss asks for the apartment for his bit on the side.As it turns out Baxter gets stood up and low and behold he finds out it was the elevator girl the boss took to his house.He dies a little inside.The Apartment is a unique story,al little original but we all know how it ends up in the end.
