Children also are new to the world and them having to grow up with it like it is normal is very pessimistic for the audience. Overall, King’s letter is very persuasive. His logical appeal does a good job making the reader understand why there should be no more segregation by explaining why there is no reason to segregate, especially after how long and rough it has been. His emotional appeal was the most persuasive as it really grabbed the reader’s attention and made a sorrowful
In 2001 The American Scholar published an excerpt from a talk given by English author Margaret Drabble which said “Our desire to conform is greater than our respect for objective facts.” It is trying to say how people try to fit in by looking and acting like everyone else so you could “fit in”. This does not concern everyone but mostly teenagers and young adults finding it harder to fit in and being treated nicely. Some might thing this doesn’t really happen in society but it is honestly everywhere. Teenagers are always wanting a certain brand and style of clothing or they will be made fun of or stick out at school.
Individualism is consistently a difficult challenge to achieve. In the movie Edward Scissorhand, by Tim Burton, the author demonstrates society’s impact on personalities, aiming to normalize everyone. First, Kim shows her gradual affection for Edward through the plot, however, repeatedly feels pressured to love Jim and second, Edward’s physical and mental outlook is changed by his new neighbours in society to fit in better. In communities, society pressures each civilian to follow an expected norm.
Teens can relate to the dystopian movie “The Maze Runner” because, in this movie the main characters are teens, so that can make this movie more appealing and relatable to them. Another reason is that they are trapped somewhere and they have to work together to find a way out, some teens could relate this to their lives because sometimes you are caught in difficult situations that forces you to work together with other to accomplish your goal and accomplish the situation, just like in “The Maze Runner”. Additionally, in this movie everyone takes care of everyone, and everyone does jobs so everyone can survive. So teens might relate to this because, some people are in groups or in the home lives or anything where they have to help others and do whatever it takes to make sure they're doing their part. Consequently, I think these are some ways that teens find this dystopian movie appealing and relatable to their modern day
The Catcher in the Rye Salinger gave the tone of the book humorous so that the book can be more relatable to teenagers in society. He talks about how Holden is lonely and he’s lost like every other teenager but he more like he doesn’t see from the real world. He is judgmental, he judges everything he sees and knows. Salinger writes this book to let us know what some teenagers go through and how people stay strong no matter what. He’s wanting us to know how teenagers are all different and they go through different things and they act a certain way because of what they’re going through.
The main key issue that saddens me in this film is how long it took the society to truly accept Edward Scissorhands for who he is beyond his appearance and has taught me to love, respect and accept those who are different. Although Edward Scissorhands may be incomplete physically, he is still a normal being like the rest of the picture-perfect society in the film and like the rest of today’s
As described above, film greatly influences society views. Vrasidas highlights that people learn to believe discrimination is ok and that stereotypes are accurate when seen in a film. As a result, students end up having to rely on their parents without receiving proper education on culture in school, which hasn’t been shown to work all of the time. That is to say, if films continue to teach culture using stereotypes students will continue to be uneducated and this will eventually create a divide in society formed by hate and misunderstanding.
Jerome B. Duesk, in a book titled Adolescent development and behavior, mentions "that sometimes siblings are [the] better communicators... Because they are closer in age [which] [makes] it easier to discuss the problems of growing up" (Duesk 299). In Holden's eyes he had no one except his little sister to rely upon for support. This proves that Holden Caulfield is relatable to many teenagers, and as such the novel should not be banned.
In The Outsiders, both greasers and Socs have formed negative friend groups called cliques. According to the article “Click or Clique: Positive and Negative Teen Social Groups,” cliques are, “organized around power and popularity” (Hartwell-Walker & Grohol). Cliques can even take away a member’s individuality. Even though greasers were focused less on public image, greasers and Socs do have unwritten, yet set standards for anyone in their gang or group. As a young teen wanting to belong, Ponyboy began to change in order to “fit in” with the greasers.
These members were also willing to follow Mr. Wenger and do exactly as he says, because he is their leader and he instructed them to. These members did not know exactly why they were doing what they were doing, such as when Mr. Wenger told them all to take the “traitor” Marco to the front of the room, except for that they were told to. The Stickiness Factor is also present throughout the film. Non-Wave members were able to recognize members of the Wave by their wearing of white, button-down shirts. Non-Wave members were also able to recognize if the Wave had control of a certain territory or had been present there if they saw the Wave symbol.
“If you’ve ever had that feeling of loneliness, of being an outsider, it never quite leaves you. You can’t be happy or successful or whatever, but that thing still stays with in you.” says Burton. Burton usually has an outcast in every film. The outcast is usually a lead role or the lead role, because Burton can relate to it most. Burton’s unique and dark fantasy includes the use of lighting and mise en scène to convey the idea that outsiders do not want to be labeled.
Edward Scissorhands (1991), directed by Tim Burton, is about a young man, named Edward Scissorhands who was incomplete, due to the death of his inventor. As so, Edward had to live with scissors as hands, throughout his whole life. Edward Scissorhands tried to fit in with the normal group and suddenly falls in love with a beautiful girl, Kim, who already had a boyfriend and so, this movie has been fallen towards the category of romance. Edward finally thought that he had his very own happiness by being different to others, but a dilemma rushes through as fast as a snip... Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder were the leading actors in this particular movie, and so if you're a fan of them, then this movie would be perfect for you.
