The film depicts the liberation of Truman Burbank, an average joe from a small island town off the Florida coast that appears straight out of a 1950s sitcom.

However, Truman is not aware that his entire life is fabricated.
‘You have never behaved to me like a brother in all your life’ reflects the relationship of Jack and Algernon and that it is rather close knit as they fight and bicker like brothers usually would. The use of caesura at the start of the quote ‘Algy, you young scoundrel, ‘ shows the possible overwhelmedness of jack in finding out that he has a brother, it shows a pause in his language and that he is thinking of what actions to take. The whole play is about the search for identity and what it truly means to be ‘earnest’. The search for Jack’s true identity is revealed at the end of the play when he finds out that he has a family, giving a cathartic release to many of the characters as jack has gone his whole life thinking that he has no real family, when in fact he has a brother and an aunt etc. Wilde uses satire to poke fun at the upper classes but also when jack finds out his true identity as at the end of the play he is in fact called ‘ernest’ showing that he wasn’t lying about who

There was no motive for the police or any officials to question Holmes further succeeding his business. Americas ingenuity was at all time high during the time the Chicago Fair was constructed. With the ability to construct attractions in an area close to water on unleveled ground in an area that was popular for violence was a very risky action. Since the fair was a major success we can infer that American Ingenuity was used for something other than producing industrial machines and products and using their resources to create architecture within America itself. Chicago was not the tier location to construct the World’s fair but in the end it was an intelligent decision for the American

Today, on Facebook, I saw a video of an African American man talking about the Black Lives Matter “movement.” This man said that he would not stand up for the movement until they acknowledged the black on black violence that happens on a daily basis across the country.

My parents adopted me at birth and although they had two Caucasian sons already, they accepted me as one of their own and two years later adopted another biracial baby girl. Diversity has been my whole life, not conforming to one race or the other, but accepting both and all others. Film, through my eyes, knows no color
For the first time, he accepted an invitation to the annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles. It was the first show following 9/11 and thus had a rather melancholic and grieving mood. Allen was not nominated that year but he was asked to introduce a short film called Love Letters to New York in the Movies, a collection of film clips from several popular films set in New York from each era. He came for his love for the city and made the audience laugh with his cynical and self-deprecating wit. It seems as if Allen was able to take the audience’s minds off of the horrible events.
