There is a lure of sympathy for King Lear because a story of redemption inspires people and catches their imagination, that anything is possible.
Albert Einstein once said, “I believe the most important mission of the state is to protect the individual and make it possible for him to develop into a creative personality.” This quote is truly applicable to the short film “La Luna”. Throughout “La Luna,” a young boy named Bambino experiences many difficulties and arguments with his father, Papȧ, and his grandfather, Nonno. Bambino is coaxed into following alongside his father and grandfather’s footsteps-- sweeping away the stars. However, towards the end of the film, Bambino becomes confident with himself by taking risks and developing as his own person. Although others’ influences may inspire creativity for the better, Enrico Casarosa’s short film, “La Luna,” indicates that creativity comes from a person’s individuality.

The day after him and Tom’s argument, Gatsby reassures Nick by believing, “I suppose Daisy’ll call,” (Fitz 154). The ignorant mind of Gatsby allows for him to believe after everything that happened between Tom and Daisy following the death of Myrtle, would let him still have a chance to win over Daisy.
