Another reason why Connie why wants to be independent from her mother is because she does not want to be like her. “Her mother went scuffling around the house in old bathroom slippers…” ( Oates 616).

Lastly, you can see that Connie has a love-hate relationship with her other, with whom she identifies, but at the same time she has to distance herself from her mother in order to establish her independence; “Sometimes, over coffee, they were almost friends, but something would come up – some vexation that was like a fly buzzing suddenly around their heads – and their faces went hard with contempt.”

Thank you for smoking turned out to be a very interesting movie. Naylor had one job to do and that was to pay the mortgage. You can clearly see that Naylor knows his smooth talking to encouraging smoking is wrong. I believe his “change of heart” was based on moral and ethical reasons. A key factor in his “change of heart come toward the end of the movie when he was asked if he would let his son smoke a cigarettes when he turned 18 and you could see that he was slow to answer the question.
A repetitive notion made in the story, as June is used as a meter to compare Connie too; which naturally, no one would like: “June did this, June did that, she saved money and helped clean the house and cooked and Connie couldn 't do a thing, her mind was all filled with trashy daydreams” (308).

Besides, females mostly did not have any opportunities to go to education. In my point of view, although this issue already becomes the history of China, in our modern society nowadays, this kind of situation and mindset still appear in our daily life.

This is clearly reflected in the aesthetic of the frames, as Jeannette 's face is never shown in full view.

In fact, the only character who is in full view is Rose Mary, because she has humbly come to terms with her lowly homeless status in New York.
