In this film, he uses a variety of themes that he continued to constantly use throughout his later films.

While the movie was entertaining, the story had you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next sentence. When there was written dialogue, the tone that was projected gave the story feeling and emotional connection. The descriptions of the characters and the way they acted, painted a visual picture so the reader was able to imagine and live the story of Harrison Bergeron’s life.

Perks of Being A Wallflower is a unique film. It keeps you listening for new sounds and what wacky things might be coming out of the people’s mouths.

Passion and Pain Good morning Mr Grimes and class. William Shakespeare’s play, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ should definitely be considered for this year’s King’s Christian College Film Festival because it is famed as ‘the tragedy of love’.

Another thing that struck me was the demeanor of Hitler.
