She acts in a caring manner to everyone’s face, but when she is alone, she becomes a heartless woman, determined to reveal what she knows. Miss Strangeworth is the one causing the distress in her community, yet she acts oblivious as to what is bothering everyone. She shows her extreme deceitfulness by attempting to ease Helen Crane’s concern about her child by saying “Nonsense… some of them develop… more quickly than others” (Jackson, 1941, p. 167). This is deceitful because she is aware that there is something different about the child and instead of voicing that, she consoles the mother, only to subsequently shatter her in an anonymous letter. Additionally, Miss Strangeworth cleverly utilizes the most common paper and envelops all townspeople use for her letters.

It has been argued that the way Blade Runner portrays the female characters is sexist and outdated, especially as seen in 2017. The unfavourable treatment of the lead female roles is continuous throughout the film, especially since they are all replicants and therefor artificial.
Beowulf is the epic tale of Beowulf, the strongest of the Geats and the slayer of monsters, and of his adventures seeking Glory. The tale that had been told for generations by scops has met the silver screen as an animated film. The movie, although it retains a significant number of themes from the original tale, takes some drastic liberties with character behaviour, interaction, and the driving force behind the story. The depiction of our glory-seeking hero Beowulf remains fairly faithful to his depiction in the poem, although there are a few differences. Beowulf was recognized as the “strongest of the Geats” and an incomparable warrior whom none could surpass.

Avatar had taken a different approach as many characters would only be used for their voice and not their looks, because the film had two perspectives.
