While watching Casablanca I was really just quite amazed with the whole concept and idea of film. Each of the characters did such an amazing job of being able to bring the film to life. The story line seemed really relatable to the present day even though the setting was during the world two time period. With the whole movie being focused on a relationship that was so strong for two people I figure that lots of people would be able to relate to a movie like this. Relationships being as complicated as they are I feel like people continue to love this film just based on how well it shows two people in a troubled relationship.
The movie clearly exposes the many ways that the human dignity of African- American maids was ignored. They had suffered daily embarrassment but were able to claim their own way dignity. The film described about empowerment of individuals as well as about social justice for a group. It is a moving story depicting dehumanization in a racist culture but also the ability to move beyond the unjust structures of society and to declare the value of every human being.
This acting style pleased me and gave me the idea the couple had real feelings for each other. The acting style this duo portrays on the big screen is very realistic of a budding relationship and is very deserving of kudos. Consequently, “Pretty in Pink” was a decent film that did have its hilarious moments and upsetting moments. “Pretty in Pink” is a film that is not my favorite genres, however the acting that was done in the film was very enjoyable to watch and caused for the film to grow on me and become one of my favorite movies. This film is a must see and will be a memorable movie to watch and can be relatable to anyone in high school and the older generations’ high school

So if you guys watch it too, and hope you do, the film often tells theories that for me really suitable in real life. Except when it comes to Barney Stinson 's theories which is somehow seem unrealistic but still had a point. And these are some of my favorite: The Cheerleader Effect This one is simple: a group of girls or guys always appears hotter than they do when they are by themselves.
Root, Identity and Community have always been the underlying theme of Toni Morrison. Through the accounts of her novels, Toni Morrison shows several ways in which slavery, which was the most oppressive period in the black history, has affected the identity of African American. In Bluest Eye, Morrison shows that a black woman who searches for her true identity feels frustrated by her blackness and yearns to be white because of the constant fear of being rejected in her surroundings. Thus Morrison tries to locate post colonial black identity in the socio-political ground where cultures are hybridized, powers are negotiated and individuals are reproduced as resistant agents. She not only writes about claiming the superiority by the white but also
Do the Right Thing is a film produced, directed, and written by Spike Lee in 1989. It is a comedic drama focusing on the injustice of racial inequality. Not only this, but this film touches on ageism and classism, all things that are still relevant in today’s society, even if we, ourselves, may not see it. With worried thoughts, funding was difficult to find. Eventually, Universal signed with Lee giving him quite the budget- $6.5 million (MentalFloss).

Set in Jackson, Mississippi ‘The Help’ written by Kathryn Stockett; is about the struggles that African American maids went through while working in a white household during the 1960’s. Black maids were entrusted with the young lives of the white children from ‘privileged families’ but were barred from using the same supermarkets, library’s or something so superficial as a bathroom. Stockett tells this story of risk, racism and courage through three different women, Aibileen Clark, Minny Jackson and Skeeter (Eugenia Phelan). Skeeter is a young privileged white girl who has recently come home from completing her four-year journalism (English) degree at the University of Mississippi. Skeeter the same as every other white privileged child was brought up by a black maid Constantine; Skeeter saw Constantine as more than just the help but as family.
1960's Jackson, Mississipi was full of racial tension, as it was the starting point of the Civil Rights Movement. The social and political rights of African Americans were suppressed, and several systems were in place to keep it that way, despite the efforts of many for integration. During this period, violence against the blacks increased greatly, and, in 1964, the Ku Klux Klan attacked 119 African Americans in just one summer. A vast majority of the black community in Mississippi worked on farms, and very few went on to become businessmen, ministers, or even teachers. Those who did were faced with a very poor income, and were often given intentionally degrading tasks to complete.
