Tom, Nick and Gatsby. Their interactions mirror Fitzgerald’s feelings for his beloved wife and the trials and tribulations they dealt with through their complicated relationship. Daisy is fickle, shallow and bored with her life; she hides behind her wealth when her life becomes complicated instead of making life-changing decisions. Daisy and her husband Tom take their inherited wealth for granted they obtain all they desire and treat people with disrespect and maintain an elitist class. Daisy marriage to Tom provides her with security.
Nick tags along because he “had nothing better to do” (24) and seems to have little qualms about the fact that Tom is cheating on Daisy openly. As Daisy’s cousin, it is expected that he stands against Tom’s infidelity. However, Nick doesn’t question the situation and even goes on to get as debauched as everyone else at the party. Nick’s “bystander complex” is further cemented when he sneaks out of the party amongst the chaos and spends the rest of it with McKee. Socially, Nick wasn’t in any position that would hinder him from offering to help Myrtle or even to stop Tom from abusing her.
They both lack of sociality and romance and denial. Miss Brill and Emily Grierson both experience lonesome and rejection, and obviously neither of them know how to deal or cope with it. The way that Emily was raised with her father always pushing away anyone who tried to get involved in Emily’s life. In his eyes no one was good enough for his daughter, and this continued till the day he died. After Emily’s fathers death a man named Homer Barron walked into her life, and lest just say he wasn’t feeling the exact same way about her, or any other woman in that matter.
Gatsby tells Nick, his neighbor, that Daisy did not enjoy the party and that he wishes she could just understand. He wants her to tell her husband Tom that she never loved him thus they can get married and have times back to the way they were five years ago. Nick proceeds to tell Gatsby, “I wouldn’t ask too much of her,” Nick ventured. “You can’t repeat the past.” “Can’t repeat the past?” he cried incredulously. “Why of course you can!” (Fitzgerald 118) In stanza two of the song “Grenade” by Bruno Mars this event is represented by the phrase “To give me all your love is all I ever asked ‘cause.” This phrase represents this event because all Gatsby wants Daisy to do is tell Tom she never loved him and that she loves Gatsby.
He supplies her with a fancy, snobby life: “They had spent a year in France for no particular reason, and then drifted here and there unrestfully wherever people played polo and were rich together” (Fitzgerald 17).This explains the Buchanans’ lifestyle because polo is a sport for those who have enough money to play it, and Tom can take Daisy wherever she wants to go. Daisy doesn 't love Tom because she is in love with Gatsby. Daisy and Gatsby had been in love a few years before, but when Gatsby left to fight in World War one Daisy married Tom. Gatsby came back from the war with all intentions to get her back. He made money illegally and bought a house across the bay from her to try to win her back.

Midnight in Paris directed by Woody Allen shows a writer named Gil lose interest in his wife named Inez as he finds way nicer and better people while mysteriously time traveling to the 1920s in Paris. On his journey he finds some of the most famous artists and authors of the time period that inspire him on the book he is writing and also on the decisions he should make with
Michael Hoffman’s 1999 adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, among numerous alterations from Shakespeare’s original work, fundamentally challenges the audience’s former notions of Nick Bottom. Often viewed by other critics and filmmakers, and even Shakespeare himself, as a simpleton, Bottom has seldom been portrayed as anything other than a lowly beast or a foolish clown. However, in his film, Hoffman abandons commonplace interpretations in order to create a rounded and complex character through which the audience finds empathy and compassion. Hoffman achieves this task of reinvigorating Nick Bottom through his use of thematic elements, costume design, and character interactions. Through their comical ignorance, in stark contrast to the
While Inez, Helen and Gil were out shopping Inez was going to buy incredibly expensive chairs and Gil refused, Inez responded with “cheap is cheap”. This demonstrates how materialistic Inez is, replicating Daisy. Paul, a manly know-it all, reflects Tom Buchanan’s personality. Paul, Carol, Inez and Gil were viewing art and Paul felt the need to overpower every fact anyone shared about the art, he always had something superior to say. This is something Tom often did throughout the novel, he was a dominant and overpowering male, identical to Paul.

Ish does not even trust his own decisions because there are no facts up front for him to see how he made his assumption.
