105 Words1 Page

A christ figure will often perform actions that are considered miracles by those around him. The film Cool Hand Luke focuses on the titular character, Luke, a prisoner who refuses to conform to life in prison. Luke performs miracles on more than one occasion throughout the film. The first instance is when he fights fellow prisoner Dragline. Dragline continuously knocks Luke down, but he keeps standing up for more. Another instance is the bet Luke makes with the other prisoners. They bet him that he can not eat fifty hard-boiled eggs in one hour, believing it was impossible. Luke accepted their challenge and miraculously succeeded.
