Leotard Rose, the image of Leotard Rose Byrne in promotional imagery, invokes a particular time in American cultural History: The early 1980s were when Olivia Newton-John ruled charts and spandex was a popular workout option for new fitness-obsessed ladies. Cultural idealism’s last vestiges had been lost to the pursuit of aesthetic perfection. This was the time that our current era was born. Sheila Rubin, Byrne’s character, is a woman both in her time and far ahead of her time.

Sheila is in an interesting marriage. Sheila and Danny Scovel, her husband, have a history that includes affection and political commitment as leftist activists. Sheila is left with no choice but to lose Danny in ambition and run for the San Diego city council. Afraid of herself and her relationship, Sheila responds with a rigid rigor. She finally finds release in aerobics after years of binging and purging.

Sheila is self-conscious, and it shows in her constant self-consciousness. We hear her internal monologue through a voice-over. It scolds anyone who isn’t up to her impossible standard, especially herself.
