In “The Glass Castle”, Jeannette Walls details the conditions in which she and her three siblings are raised under by their parents, Rose and Rex Walls. Walt Disney had this quote that explained how he doesn 't believe in playing down to his children and that some parents attempt to hide things about the world from children. One may believe that Walt Disney’s quote about playing down to children is one that perfectly describes Rex and Rose Walls’ parenting style. They give the illusion that they portray parents who don 't believe in playing down to their children. On the contrary though as they are just abusive and horrible parents that abandon and exploit their children and disguise their horrible acts as early life lessons.
Another key similarity between the texts is that both Truman and Scrooge have their pasts revisit them. The first ghost that visits Scrooge is the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost said to him ``I am the Ghost of Christmas Past.'' The ghost showed scrooge what he had done wrong in his past Christmases. This made Scrooge feel awful, so bad in fact he tried to kill the ghost. However Truman didn’t visit his past, it was implied that he had flash backs about his father and other events.
The ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of Christmas present, and last but not least the ghost of Christmas to come. (Dickens 9) In the movie Scrooge is despised by everyone he knows. Everyone who walks by him is afraid to ask him a question or even bump him accidentally while
The Christmas Carol play comes to life on Christmas Eve in the winter of 1843. (Dickens, 1) Ebenezer Scrooge is the main character who has absolutely no respect for Christmas at all. Matter of fact, he despises this merry holiday which is called to be the conflict of the play but Bob Cratchit, who works for him, is just filled with the thought of it. Yet Ebenezer’s frozen heart doesn’t care until the moment Future(ghost) takes him upon his own
She wasn’t allowed to have a job because her husband worked, therefore, she wasn’t in touch with the outside world since all her duties were inside the house. She is expected to do what her father and/or husband tells her to do. Such as to stop spending so much money on things. Nora had a bunch of gifts delivered to her home for Christmas and the kids and her husband, Torvald yells at her and says, “Nora, Nora, how like a woman! No, but seriously, Nora, you know what I think about that.
One of the major differences is how Hazel was the one in the kitchen in the movie and she didn’t see her son on television while in the book George was the one in the kitchen. Another difference that changed the genre of both the book and the movie is how Harrison was threatening the people with a Bon the film which made the genre the movie suspenseful while in the book Harrison was straight to point. Lastly, the movie version added a part that was not mentioned in the book but it helped the audience be sympathetic towards that whole story. This added part is when George hallucinates about his son getting taken away by the government but he sadly keeps on forgetting because of the handicaps he’s
Circular plot lines start and end in the same way or a similar way. We started off with a Christmas scene where the family is enjoying their time together and we ended it with the same Christmas scene, but the grandfather is remembering the Christmas they had together. This shows isolation in that when he is remembering all his precious memories, he is alone and is finding it difficult to recall because he has dementia. The slow decline of his mental state and the fading of his memories in the final scene brings him to the state of complete isolation in the world. The use of the “6 months later” placards shows the nonlinear plot line.
He also says he finds Santa creepy because he "knows when you are sleeping or awake." This Christmas was extra odd to him because his mom finds a childhood doll and says that it is watching over them. These were a few of the things that Greg says makes him hate the holidays.

Weeks also states that many directors shy away from discussing the social issues when adapting A Christmas Carol as a play or a movie. Weeks says this is because “poverty and hunger and crippling diseases don 't make for the kind of festive holiday fare that delights subscribers” (Weeks). This piece fits into our course inquiry because the article is Weeks comparing book elements to elements in adaptations and how they compare and contrast. Weeks also mentions that overall, plays and movies can’t achieve elements of the book. For example, plays can’t have Marley’s face as a doorknocker or portray the Ghost of Christmas Past as a character with 20 legs.
