The league was founded in 1943, all the owners of the baseball teams did not want the game to be forgotten, so they sent scouts looking for a ton of female ballplayer, yet to know that this league would be so successful.

Throughout life we are told to express our individuality and swim against the stream of the general population to put emphasis on the characteristics that make us, in short, individuals. Cherishing what makes an individual special and different is what establishes roots in creativity and self expression, however there is a forced false sense of comradery in today’s society that takes the form of involvement with the masses; peer pressure forces many people to fall into the mold of an average character. The Academy award winning film, “The Incredibles” displays the themes of expressing one’s true self and special qualities, and in contrast repression by society to fit a basic mold. These themes are elaborated on through the development of the main characters and expressed further through the supporting roles and their dialogue and endeavors.
In the movie “A League of Their Own”, one can see how the more sexist views of the culture in the 1940s and 50s in America was present in the Girls Professional Baseball League. “A League of Their Own” is a movie about what was once the “All-American Girls Professional Baseball League” which was formed when the young men were sent over to serve in World War II.
Women and baseball are two categories that were never put together. Up until the 1940’s, the cliche of American women playing sports was challenged. Due to World War II, all men were off fighting for the Allied Forces, including many sports stars. Not wanting to focus on the negative aspects of the war, women turned to baseball.They played not only as an escape from the gloomy war, but women also played to prove that they had an impact on America. This showed that they were more than just housewives; it showed that women were more than the stereotypes that had plagued them since the early ages of time. Softball allowed women an escape to a world where they were free from judgement, could do what they loved, and were not constantly being haunted by the standard that men and
I always love to read books and watch their movies, because I get to witness the differences that take place. I prefer the books because they have more detail and really let you decide how the characters look and act. Lots of times, the stories are different than the film versions. The short story, “Most Dangerous Game”, is a very good example of this. The film and the movie have lots of things in common, but this paper is about the complete opposite. The exposition has the first significant difference hidden inside and is just waiting for us to reveal it. By comparing and contrasting the elements of plot in the text and film iterations of “The Most Dangerous Game,” the reader will discover which is the most effective representation.
O Brother Where Art Thou? is a film that will take you on a perilous journey with Ulysses Everett McGill and his simpleminded cohorts. This film may be set amidst the early 1930’s Great Depression era, but it still has a Homer’s Odyssey feel to it. Down in the dusty and highly racial south, Everett recruits a couple of dimwitted convicts, Pete Hogwallop and Delmar O’Donnell, to help him retrieve his lost treasure and make it back home before his wife marries another suitor. These three convicts manage to stay one step ahead of the law while finding themselves in all sorts of trouble. It was nominated for 35 other awards, one of which was for best screenwriting. Released in December of 2000, this film won 7 awards, some of which for best soundtrack and score, album of the year, as well as best cinematography.
Narrative is generally accepted as possessing two components: the story presented and the process of its telling.
“Leone’s original version tells this story in a complex series of flashbacks, memories, and dreams.”
Two films, although created years apart yet have a lot in common, including their content of it’s narrative techniques. Both films, even though black and white with strokes of genius of cinema offer a vast stretch for study. I will be looking at Sir Orson Welles “Citizen Kane” (1941) and Akira Kurosawa’s “Rashomon” (1950). We see in Citizen Kane he values for the American life. The three abstract themes that constantly follow through Citizen Kane are Wealth, Power and Love. However, in the movie “Rashomon” it displays the pursuit of the truth. The use of narratives allows them to take both the films to interesting directions. In Citizen Kane the narratives tell the viewers the insignificant part of life of an American Newspaperman Mr. Charles Foster Kane. In Rashomon the viewer gets a totally different perspective. We also notice that in Citizen Kane Well’s has used a lot of black techniques and its techniques and in Rashomon on the other hand is more a day lit film. In this essay I will be comparing the themes and the narrative techniques used in both films.
The best thing I know is to do exactly what you wish for a while (Roman Holiday):
The novel ‘Jasper Jones’ written by Craig Silvey and the film ‘Dressmaker’ directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse have connected to the audience and use of narratives conventions in very similar ways. The ways that they have succeed doing this is through characteristics, plot and setting. By looking into how they are used by the author/ director widen the knowledge and have deeper in-depth understanding on how authors and directors use them to connect with the audience.

A group of men betting on jumping into a lake, a private discussion with a best friend, and a get together for drinks in a basement are scenes which revealed the friendliness and respect the townspeople had for Lucas, whom was played by Mads Mikkelson. He was just an ordinary man – a caring kindergarten teacher who recently got divorced, and who was also seeking custody of his son, Marcus. Thomas Vinterberg’s The Hunt follows a rural and close-knit Danish community, who are thrown into a collective hysteria when Lucas’ student, Klara, accuses him of sexually abusing her. The community then punishes Lucas by condemning him, while he fights hard for his innocence. Through its narratives and discourse, the film acts as a vehicle that interpellates
