In the movie Klute, a woman by the name of Bree Daniels is shown as one of the main characters. Her profession involves being a call-girl and a part-time actress. Bree is being harassed by phone calls late at night and has the feeling she is being watched. After a police officer named John Klute shows up to investigate a disappearance of a man, the two start to develop a relationship with each other. As time passes the stalking of Bree increases but eventually it is found out who the stalker is. After this, Klute helps Bree to move out of her apartment.

This guess is shown through her dependency on others and money, the lighting of the set from dark to light, all while helping to show a progressive change in Bree.

She says it would cost him and time is money. The fact that she considers any of her services even off of the call-girl job a way to make money, shows how dependent and how caught up in the call-girl act she has become in.
