Blanche always lies about what is really going on in her life to escape from painful circumstances. When Blanche arrived at Stella’s house, she explained she left her job because, “…[she] was exhausted by all [she] had been through [her]—nerves broke”(pg. 11). Blanche had made up this story to cover up the embarrassing circumstance of kissing a student and to shelter her from the humiliation. Also, Blanche plays emotional games with men to get the attention she needs to feel good. For example, when Blanche sees the paper boy, she takes out a scarf to try and seduce him, quickly kisses him without waiting for consent, and rushes him on his way without a word from him, just to play with his emotions (pg. 88).
Every High School has Mean girls, but not all high schools have the plastics. Mark Waters famous teen-comedy film, “Mean Girls” was released on April, 30, 2004. As you can infer already the movie is most likely about Mean girls. “Mean Girls” is about 3 girls, also known as the plastics who were the most popular girls in school. Regina George, Gretchen Wieners, and Karen Smith were all best friends at Northshore High school, known as the plastics.
The film “Mean Girls” is about a teenager, Cady Heron, who was homeschooled her entire life in Africa by her zoologist parents for 16 years and is enrolled in a High school, in US for the first time. Cady faces a lot of difficulties at first as she had never been to high school before. She initially meets Janis and Damien, who help her guide the dangerous landscape of high school cliques. But Cady catches the eye of a clique of popular girls referred to as “The Plastics,” led by Regina and her close friends Gretchen and Karen. "Clueless" is based on a teen girl called Cher, a high school student in wealthy Beverly Hills, who lives with her lawyer dad Mel and her stepbrother Josh.
The movie Mean Girls shows many of the psychological themes that have been discussed throughout the course. Two prominent themes within the movie are bullying and cliques. Bullying is described by the book as being “verbal or physical behavior intended to disturb someone less powerful” (Santrock, 2016, p. 351). Bullying is extremely prominent in schools, which is the setting of the movie, with one in three students claiming that they have experienced bullying at some point whether as the victim or the bully (Santrock, 2016, p. 351). In the movie, bullying is a prominent plot point with most of the background characters stating that they, at some point, had been bullied by Regina George.
Mean Girls The Mean Girls is a movie created in the year 2004 about a girl who is named Cady, who has been homeschooled. She finally goes to regular school however, all the high schoolers are divided into different groups based on their personality and appearances. Some of the many groups that they are divided into are the following: plastics, cool Asians, math athletes, varsity jocks, desperate wannabe's, and nerd Asians. After watching the movie and observing how the different groups of students interact with each other I can hypothesis that they were all insecure at least once throughout the movie, lack of feminism and they feel that backstabbing will solve all problems.
Another example of a teen film that institutes a similar stereotypical high school social hierarchy is the well-known movie, Mean Girls. Cady Heron, who lived her first 15 years in the African jungle, being home-schooled and living only with her parents, never knew what "high school" meant, until moving out of Africa and enrolling in a real school. She instantly becomes friends with two teenagers, Damian and Janis, who were in the "out crowd", as opposed to the “Plastics”, which consists of Regina, the unofficial leader, Gretchen and Karen, her followers, all of whom are gorgeous and popular. The Plastics, after meeting Cady, immediately let her into their group, but Cady is unsure, because she did not want to leave her first friends, but they
