When Lucetta waits to meet Henchard and ran into Farfrae, she quickly agrees to start a love relationship with Farfrae despite that she did not really know him. Perhaps this is a depiction of how women were portrayed in the pre industrialist era in Victorian England; they were spontaneous and romantic, taking decisions without thinking it through. Lucetta seems as a person who lives recklessly and in accordance with the moment rather than planning. She seems rather childish. Lucetta and Farfrae have a good relationship until the town people know about her past relationship with Henchard and decide to expose them.

The film in short describes the high school life of a chaste girl, Olive, who conforms to peer pressure and starts lying about her sexual behavior in order to maintain a certain reputation as well as to help out her troubled friends. This eventually leads her to challenge her self concepts to extreme levels, causing her to either liberate herself from the façade she created or sink into the role. Easy A describes many genuine psychological phenomena and I am going to focus on three of them; Cognitive dissonance theory, how societal and cultural norms dictate our attitudes and thoughts, and different ways of persuasion. The cognitive dissonance theory is the feeling of unease that is felt when we act in opposition to our attitudes, which causes a shift of attitude in order to be consistent with our behavior. Easy A depicts strongly the theory of cognitive dissonance on numerous occasions.
However, Helena has been always in love with him. She is the only one that cares more about the essence of love. In fact, when the two Athenians boys love the same woman she says: “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind”(I.i.234). With that sentence, she is referring to the beauty of Hermia that impedes Demetrius from noticing the virtues of Helena; and finally, the last couple is Theseus and Hyppolyta. They appear at the beginning and at the end of the play, being imperceptible for the rest of the comedy.

In the drama-pact film, Moonrise Kingdom, director Wes Anderson emphasizes the coming-of-age through his quirky characters and comedic dialect. The film is formed into a dreamlike fable, creating a sense of order and symmetry, as symmetry is marveled throughout the film, not only with the use of mise-en-scene but with character depiction. Anderson defines the identities of the two stroppy, rebellious characters, Suzy Bishop and Sam, by fabricating adult-like humor and scenes dramatized by 12 year olds. Suzy and Sam’s insurgence is out of the norm for children; two pen pals walking away from their caretakers and falsifying a life of their own. Unlikely scenarios are captured through each frame, but within each catastrophic event in the midst is a moral;
