However, he was pulled of by one of his friends, which in the novella is his friend Gordie, that makes him very angry and causes a conflict between the two. Gordie justified his actions based on the fact that the driver could’ve reported about them to police, saying “Teddy, you dodge anything after we see what we are going to see, but until then no one is supposed to see us” (334). While on the other hand, when Chris pulls Teddy off the railways in the movie, he justifies his action by saying “I was just trying to save your life, man,” and then doesn’t allow the
His town hated the fact that an honourble lawyer defend a black man, and his family thought it would ruin the family name by doing so. Atticus took the case, because he said, “…if I didn’t I couldn’t hold up my head in town, I couldn’t represent this county in the legislature, I couldn’t even tell you or Jem not to do something again.” (Page 78) Unlike the conspiracy to kill Caesar, this action came with different
Mayella’s dad was mad at some of the events that happened during the trial because Atticus had chosen to represent Tom and certain questions that he had asked Mayella. Her father confronted Atticus in town, spit on him, and told him that he was going to kill him. Atticus did not care what was being said to him and chose to walk away. Even when Scout tells Atticus that kids have been bullying her because their dad is protecting people of color he tells them to ignore them because it should not matter what they are saying. He teaches his kids to have a strong sense of justice, to be open minded, and always do what is
Noah and Jude hardly talked and their Father was always going out for walks, "clearing his head." The Mother's death was sudden and unexpected, as she was killed in a car accident, which was another big factor that caused the twins to lose touch, as neither of them were expecting it in any way. I know that if I experienced something so sudden and life changing like that, it would affect me dramatically, maybe even causing me to shut people out, like Jude and Noah did to most people. The guilt that ensued after the Mum's death also majorly affected the twins. Each thought that they had caused their Mums death in different ways, whether it was something they said or something they did the last time they saw her.

When Castle cut his shoes to go faster but this only hurt him because his classmate Shamika embarrassed him. “Shamika couldn’t get herself together long enough to even speak, so instead she just pointed at my feet” (Reynolds 80). What Shamika did made Castle so frustrated that he skipped school and made him realize it was a waste of money which was already a problem in his family. Another time shoes played a big role was when Castle stole the “Silver Bullets” from the sports store. When Castle first stole the shoes he thought it was the best thing he has done for his track career but he was punished for it.”A close-up of my
The femme fatale in this film is Morgan Taylor, as she was unwillingly involved in the first murder, as well as causing Dixon to try to deflect blame off her father when this had a chance to expose him. However, Morgan is a variant on this archetype as she generally is unaware of the effect she has on others. Near the beginning of the film Morgan is watching a gambling game. She wants to leave, however one of the men there tries to force her to stay so that another person will stay and lose more money. She leaves anyway, and this angers two of the men until one of them snaps and kills the other.
In fact at one point “Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand” (37). Tom never felt any repercussions for his action because Myrtle decided to stay with him and not press charges due to her interest in his money and lifestyle. As stated in the previous paragraph, Myrtle Wilson was hit and killed by a car driven by Daisy. The reason that Myrtle ran out in front the car is because Tom drove Gatsby’s car into the city and she saw him getting gas earlier that day. If she had not seen Tom driving that car then she would have let it pass and would not have run to stop it.
In addition to Gilberts struggles there are also some diversity issues with Arnie’s mother, because of weight gain she has been laughed at and pointed at by the people in her town, that when she passed her children does not want to humiliated again so they burn the house down. I chose to focus on the lack of knowledge and empathy the people in the town had regarding Arnie and his disability, with consideration of the time era in which the movie was filmed. The way the sheriff handled Arnie while taking him into custody and also the doctor’s thoughts on Arnie’s life span. The diversity issues were present well in the film, I watched the movie when it first came out and I can say now that I have expanded my knowledge I am able to see the issues presented in the
