Gathering the courage to tell his father that he was going to go fishing with his friend was hard for the young man to do because he knows it would change their regular routine of fishing together and possibly hurt his father. While contemplating on how he should tell his father, the young man thought, “It was a very serious thing” (16). In contrast to all the long sentences, the fact that this sentence is short emphasizes the importance of how the young man’s new idea of going with his friend instead of his father changes his relationship with his father. However, the young man and father’s relationship won’t completely change because they will always have a strong foundation, which they created when the young man was still a kid and they spent a lot of time together. The young man and the father spent so much time together while the man was a kid to the point that “his father had always preferred his company to that of men and he had always preferred his father’s company to that of the other guys” (20-22).

Chrislyn Atkinson P.8 Screenplay Critique The movie Big Fish is a film about a young man by the name of Edward Bloom and how he really liked telling stories. In the movie Edward finds out he has cancer and has very little time to live so his son Will, who he hasn’t talked to in several years, comes back to see his dad. I personally liked this film because it was really interesting and had lots of different symbols and themes so you could see it and take it anyway you wanted and it was really funny! To begin, growing up Will was always told all of these awesome and entertaining stories but when he got older he realized that they were just for fun and they were all fake. Then at Wills wedding party his dad was telling the story of the big fish he caught while Will was being born.
Big Fish follows the distant relationship between father and son after years without communication. William Bloom, without hesitation, travels to his hometown of Ashton, Alabama along with his expectant wife after receiving news of his dying father, Edward. William’s issue with his father is derived from the fanciful tales Edward has told of his life, not only to William, but the entire world. William has one goal in mind: to discover the truth. In order to fully understand his father, William must determine fact from fiction, either directly from his father and/or from other sources, allowing a heart-wrenching, yet compelling story.

Randy Bragg, a young man in Fort Repose, must rise up to save his town from their crisis and help rebuild it. This novel tells the story of how the community of Fort Repose puts aside their normal social boundaries and prejudice to come together to achieve a common goal: survival. Pat Frank uses difficult settings, challenging conflicts, and indirect characterization to convey his theme that during a catastrophe, a community must work together to survive. First of all, the formidable settings help convey the theme by showing that the characters are working together. For example, during the August heat, the fish stop biting because they swim to the bottom of the river bed to keep cool.

The older fish says to the two young fish, “Morning boys. How’s the water?” As they swim away, one young fish says to the other, “What the hell is water?” Wallace explains that humans share a commonality with the young fish in that they go about their day-to-day lives completely unaware of the obvious. He believes that, because people are so self-focused, they often take the most significant things in life for granted. As he concludes his speech, Wallace revisits the fish story, and says the most significant quality we should take with us in to the adult world is “simple awareness; awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time, that we have to keep reminding ourselves over and over: ‘This is water, this is
In connection, his trust in others is also demonstrated in this situation as he is forced to choose a replacement for the king he killed. With little thought, Perseus chose to crown Dictys as the new ruler. Dictys was, in a sense, Perseus's second father during his childhood. He nourished him, protected him, and helped him learn how to make a living by fishing. The reason this decision shows his trust in others is because Perseus could have easily taken the position for himself, but instead chose to trust somebody else who was close to him with the job.
