Having just watched the brilliant film about a gifted boy called Vitus made me rethink of the notion of giftedness. Whereas Vitus exhibits typical pattern of behavior of a gifted child, he is still unique in his ability to live “like a gifted”. In the beginning of the film he is regarded as aloof and extraordinary, discussing the concept of a “global warming”, thus, making his kindergarten teacher feel befuddled and even frightened. Though this precocity is seen a typical trait of a gifted child, according to Robinson (2008), who puts the intellectual superiority over other age peers in first place along with other eminent features (p. 34). After that we see the situation recurring during the math lesson, when Vitus operates with complex figures
He was raised in an orphanage, after his father left his pregnant mother and his mother died in childbirth. He caused many problems with the other children because of his ability to use magic, until the age of 11 when Professor Dumbledore came to offer him a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was a very bright child and thrived at his new school, earning respect from teachers and finding the many secrets of the castle, though never truly having friends. At around the age of 15 he began to focus on his new goals: to become the most powerful wizard of all time, to kill or remove all muggle-borns from the wizarding society, and to become immortal. He changed his name to Lord Voldemort and set out to make 7 Horcruxes, each housing a small part of his soul.
During one of the morning sessions, she notices Winston exerting minimal effort during stretching. The instructress communicates specifically with Winston through the screen and after exorbitant amounts of encouragement, “Winston, with a violent lunge, succeeded in touching his toes with his knees unbent, for the first time in several years”(37). Winston recognizes the problems with the world in which he lives; unlike others, he can remember the past and knows that the Party alters history so that they can remain in power. However, even he ultimately recognizes that going against the Party will result in punishment. Therefore, although the exercises hurt Winston, the combination of the lady’s relentless focus along with the idea that the rest of the population also participates in the stretching overpowers Winston’s innate resistance to the Party.
