In short Grace’s opinions of Alida are that she sees herself smarter then she might be and having a high regard for herself, while Alida’s visions of Grace to dull and shy(829- 831). Women are quick to pass judgement on one another and to allow their assumptions to get the best of them which Alida and Grace are guilty of. Friendships that are in fact true are built primarily on unity among women who positively try to build one another up rather than tear them down. Women would pride themselves in the others success wishing to see them happy within their
With Lilo they so intimately allowed us to identify with her loneliness and isolation, without making the movie overly depressing. The way they were able to portray what it means for an older sister to raise a younger sister, that includes the friction and fighting that occurs with this type arrangement was beautiful. To show the friction and fighting in a way that was humorous but relatable was completely genuine. Last, I found myself on the edge of my seat rooting for Nani to proving to the social worker "Mr. Bubbles" that she is fully capable of taking care of Lilo and convince him that Lilo belongs with her, not a
She was no longer Minerva, high spirited girl with big dreams of being a lawyer, she was now one of three Mariposas, praised and somehow reduced to just a word, Butterfly. During one of their meetings, her friend Elsa gushes over her, ‘“Viva la Mariposa!’ she whispered with feeling. I gave her the bright brave smile she also required of me”’ (Alvarez 265). Minerva is the one most involved in the revolution, the face of the Mariposas, and it makes sense how she brings up the face a lot. The face of patriotism, courage, and unwielding drive to help out.
In 2001, Reese Witherspoon starred in box-office success Legally Blonde, a movie about a superficial sorority girl’s ascent to become valedictorian of Harvard Law School. Many regard this movie as a fun and light “feel-good” watch. While there is no disagreement that this movie is an easy watch, it holds much more meaning than appears on the surface.

As already mentioned, one of the best attributes of Helena Bonham Carter’s performance is the humanisation of Miss Havisham represented through her acting. She shows different emotions of Miss Havisham, therefore contrasting with other performances that only show a deathly serious character. Thus it is possible for the spectator to understand the complexity of her character, and not seen her only as a mad evil ‘creature’. The scene with little Estella at two coming to Satis House emphasises even more that aspect in Miss Havisham, and plays a key role in this film. Gillian Anderson’s performance can be considered particularly original because she gives Miss Havisham a child-like aspect, with a little girl’s voice.
