No historians were used in the making, because it is adapted from the novel. However, many historians have given their mixed reviews of the movie and what it does and doesn’t portray from their point of view. I think the aim of the film was “…the movie itself, whose message preaches individual empowerment over an oppressive society” (Ryzik). Along with the individual empowerment, the vantagepoint of the film was the help, to show what they went through. Historicity: They are many different perspectives on what the movie portrays.
The trailer shows some big events of the book, but nothing that would be crucial of the movie’s going to be good or bad. The movie has lot of emotion. More than it’s expected after the book. Jeanette Walls has written it in a formal way, no feelings about the past, or the things what happened with her. While reading the book, the things happens, we expect that and you go to the next one, but in the film the thing hit us on the face.
Rostand did not want to emulate the Romantics. His work with Cyrano was completely unconventional. Rostand found a person in history with whom he admired, and then he found an actor who could demonstrate the message he wanted to display, and the play was produced. Some might even say that if more “Truly Romantic” plays have been written like Cyrano, the period might have lasted longer. If one looks up the word ‘Romantic’ in the dictionary in contemporary times, a picture of Cyrano de Bergerac should pop up, however if you were to consider that word during the French Romantic period, one wouldn’t find Cyrano de Bergerac anywhere near that word.
Marcie Ray argues that the music creates an unreal and fancy feeling in the film, but it also adds more elements of entertainments to meet audiences’ sensory demand (24) and “With regard to the musical, songs are the vehicle for the actors’ ideas and feelings to take place in an open way or a revolutionary way to spread on the works” (26). Audiences are brought into the whole story by the songs. At the same time, the songs relieve the intense conflicts between different roles and add some comedy to the story. Marianne Carroll says, “The musical overlooks the complexity of Eliza’s character and of her relationship to Henry. In their musical incarnations, Shaw’s characters lose much of their edginess and humanity.
The language was probably the most loved part as barely and props and no scenery was used. The audience was supposed to by focusing on the “richly evocative Language.” The performances were accompanied by music and costume though to add the “effect” From there on Shakespeare’s great story of lovers Romeo and Juliet, many people got they’re inspiration. As mentioned above, there were several film adaptations, however also many musicals are based on the timeless play. A few very successful musicals which were inspired by the original piece were composed by Berlioz, Gounod, Bellini and Tchaikovsky. “Kenneth MacMillan choreographed a ballet to Prokofiev 's music and this was premiered at Covent Garden in 1964, with Rudolph Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn in the title roles.
Straight from the get-go the movie was able to captivate my attention by submerging me into the life of Jeanette Walls and her unordinary family. The lineup of actors who portrayed these characters did a superb job because of the way they were able to interact with each other and their surroundings, also the background characters were also a reason as to why this film was enjoyable. Even if there are some differences between the movie and the book, the overall messages are not lost through director Destin Cretton’s adaptation of the memoir. In the past, I have been someone who more than likely would always prefer the book over the movie due to the fact that books always gave more detail to character’s motives and descriptions of scenes. Also with the books there always seemed
In reading the novel one would be able to visualize the characters based on the descriptions given by the author. One may even expect the characters in the film to never meet their expectation, however, the selection of the cast was well thought out and their performance surpassed ones expectation. The character Daisy Bucannan is presented a little bolder than in the novel where she seemed to be quieter. “Are you in love with me?” this question by Mrs Bucannan in the novel shows her flirty nature which is also well depicted in the film. Also the enactment of when she was speaking to Nick on the balcony, was able to make the audience empathize with her just as the novel intended.

Collins is widely celebrated among the pioneers of modern English detective fiction for his The Moonstone (1869). However, in the beginning, his merit as a literary artist was not much recognised by the critics and reviewers as his success was primarily acquired in popular genre like the sensation novel. In the later part of the twentieth century, Collins has obtained greater critical attention for the emergence of a new interest in popular literary forms. The current trends of Collins criticism do not consider the author as a mere ‘sensationalist’, rather thoroughly explore the complexity of his narrative pattern and highlights the radical and subversive elements of his literary creation. This paper proposes to explore the representation of ‘disability’ (both physical and mental) in Collins’s major novels written in the 1860s.
