Gangster movies have been successful for many years, these movies depict the real-life experiences of gang members. Furthermore, these movies also portray the views that the gang members have for females. Gwendolyn D. Pough, the author of What It Do, Shorty, stated perfectly the minimal number of roles available for them in hood related movies. Ms. Pough wrote, “However, what does come across clearly as one reads the Steffans’s memoir and Bryan’s tell-all are the ways in which some women have chosen to buy into the sexism and misogyny that limits the roles that women can play in hip-hop culture” (Pough. pg.

A women might run for high political office, but there is almost always analysis about whether she is sexy, too(page 512, Everything’s An Argument),” Hanes explains about how women are sexualized within television.

Despite the anguish she felt, Daisy followed through with the wedding, because she knew that it meant she would gain more wealth, and power. The night before her wedding day, she receives a letter from Jay Gatsby, the man she presumably loved. His letter is enough to tear her to pieces, and almost enough to change the course of her life. She then allows herself to wallow in sadness and alcohol, so much so that she reveals her true emotions, and breaks her expensive pearls, regardless of the prosperity and wealth they represented: “Here, deares." She groped around in a waste-basket she had with her on the bed and pulled out the string of pearls.
Towards the beginning of the story when Creon wants to punish her for burying her brother, Antigone begs him to kill her, as “[His] talking is a great weariness.” (2.95) Not only is she trying to show disrespect by rushing the king, but is doing so arrogantly, putting herself above him for that brief moment.

She realizes fate is “Operative for ever, beyond man utterly. [Antigone] knew [she] must die...” (2.64). She accepts knowledge of her end, and lives on with it.

Here is another example of subtext that has a great story and dialogue, as well as a good performance. In the 1995 comedy-drama Waiting to Exhale, a character named Bernadine played by Angela Bassett shows anger on a cheating husband by taking off all his belongings, packing them into a vehicle and setting them ablaze in front of their house. When the firemen came to their house, he (the fireman) told her what she had done was illegal, she looked at the fireman officer and says "it won't happen again." The facial expression, gestures and tone of voice she portrays gives the audience a sense of understanding that she was referring to an adulterous husband. This moment was more powerful with the subtext and it had more impact than just having Bernadine just explain why she damaged her husband’s belongings.
