The American politician, and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt once said “‘People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built’”. In Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Louis Zamperini, exemplifies this quote because he grew with life’s experiences. In fact life put Louis in a Japanese P.O.W camp where he grew into a new man. Miraculously, Louis somehow always survived the tough situations life threw at him, and it was this skillfulness that got him through it.

Vitus, even without knowing what paradox is in the beginning, symbolizes this word throughout the whole movie, making the viewer empathize and love this wunderkind. Also this story reminds me of my relationship with my grandpa, who I am very close to since the childhood and who brought me up, believing and supporting me in all my aspirations and who could teach me the most important lessons of my life. Thus, to sum up, it is important to bear in mind that regardless whether the child is gifted or not, it is the family who should play a role of a firm rock, which by any means will support and accept the child, when the outside world does not want to, and the child should be aware of that while making different

Akeelah had to overcome so many challenges with people judging her and problems with her mom, but everyone was able to come together and help her. I loved that they showed all the people in the community she worked with helping her spell the final word.
