Similar to the film Adaptation that used internal monologues to show Charlie working through his ideas for the movie of The Orchid Thief. In Rings in Time Kaufman uses a combination narration and internal monologues in Sarah's voice to keep the feeling of a story being told to us and her daughter. When Sarah is in the present day he uses internal monologues to help the audience understand the thought processes when she is trying to figure out the Heptapods language. Then when she is in the future seeing her daughters life and death she is narrating over the scenes. Another style he carried over from Adaptation is the seamless transition between different aspects of the story.

High emotional junctures in the film such as “when Juno accuses … the baby’s father of being ashamed of the fact that he and Juno have had sex” show a “break in Juno’s strength”, further developing the reality of her character and situation (199). The “juxtaposition” of these emotional peaks and the “quirks” of teenage life build an image of a girl being thrust out of the naivety of her teen years too soon (199). This image being reinforced via “visual cues” such as Juno calling “an abortion clinic, on a phone that looks like a hamburger” and her birth scene, where “she wears long, brightly striped socks” (199). To combat the idea of dialogue “too clever to be realistic”, Heinekamp claims that it only makes moments where there is a lack of this wit more powerful (200). An example of this being

The 1995 film adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, directed by Ang Lee and originally written by Jane Austen, has timeless elements in its composition. Starring Emma Thompson, also the screenwriter, and Kate Winslet as Elinor and Marianne Dashwood, the movie tells of two heroines and their struggle between balancing idealism and reality.

Elinor’s ideal partner is the initially dull Edward Ferrars, who is discovered to be secretly engaged
“We tell ourselves stories in order to live” (Joan Didion). Sarah Polley 's personal documentary is astonishing within each approach that was taken, commencing its postmodern structure to the unprocessed sentiment of its cautiously exposed family secrets. “I just started thinking of storytelling as a really basic human need and wanted to make a film about that, I think” (Sarah Polly). When researching different aspects of the film, I had come across an interview by Germain Lussier, Sarah Polly was asked “What made you want to make a movie that explores the function of storytelling?”

The facade of icy domination shatters at the mention of her father’s name.
In Jason Reitman’s independent film “Juno” a lot of foreshadowing started from the introduction of the movie. An example of this is the empty chair, which serves as a motif and ultimately defines the direction of the story. Juno stares at the chair in the beginning of the movie reminiscing on having sex with Bleeker and feeling saddened by having to put it up for sale. That prop served as a implicit meaning, it lies below the movies overall meaning but hints to how the pregnancy is handled by how Juno decides to give the baby up for adoption and maneuver as if the whole situation never happened. Camera angles played a big part in the movies overall expression.
The Role of Women in the Transformation of Men into Warriors War has always been a key element in symbolizing manhood. Men who have participated in wars and battles have been portrayed as manly.
