They're dark, suitably so, and I think they're an important antidote to the romantic elements of the story. It's good that we're not going to shy away from that. There's lots of shades within the colors of the characters. It's true to life, isn't it? Nothing is one thing or the other. Jack is one of life's interesting contradictions.
