Even though the story line is about love and relationships, the fact remains that the time periods as well as the idea of relationship and marriage are very different from Shakespeare’s time and that of the 1990’s. In both the film and play, Kat Stratford and Katherina Minola make changes to better accommodate their partners. For example –Katherina changes her shrewish attitude to better suit Petruchio, and – Kat changes her negative attitude ,and same goes with Patrick, meeting half way, while changing things she dislikes about him as well. “Have you seen the unwashed miscreants that go to that school?” is a direct quote from the movie supporting Kat and her negative attitude. Walter Stratford is the single and overprotective dad to Kat and her lovely younger sister Bianca, and in his desire to not allow Bianca to date until Kat does.

Well some readers agree with his love interest Anastasia that he is the epitome of male beauty, while others consider him to be a deeply disturbed individual. For some Christian is merely misunderstood and meeting the right woman brought out his romantic side, but others find his abusive, manipulative and controlling side a bit harder to overlook. This means that while some considering his relationship with Anastasia to be beautiful and romantic it can also be seen as abusive and controlling. Professor Snape (Harry Potter) One of the most polarizing characters in the Harry Potter series is Severus Snape who some regard as a tragic hero while others view him as being purely bitter and conniving. While some readers can appereciate his complexity, intelligence and determination, many others find him to be abusive, petty arrogent.
Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
42nd Street explores this theme by placing Dorothy in a relationship with the production’s financial donor. If he isn’t happy with Dorothy, as seen in a scene near the end of the film, he threatens to pull his money, which would mean the end of the show. Gold Diggers of 1933 shows the theme by having one production shut down due to lack of finances and having another struggle to go up for the same reason. The two movies also use the same dramatic plot convention of an almost disastrous night where the lead cannot take the stage. In the end, it is our protagonists who must take the stage and save the
Sleeping with Buddy would not count, though, because he would still be one person ahead of me, I would have to be someone else.” (p.74, The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath) Hence, it can be said that at some instances , it is the character’s (Esther) own melancholic and depressed nature that makes the situation comical for the reader and Buddy, as well, has been a source of comedy as he pops in and out throughout the story. There is also an evidence of obsession of being in a relationship with men that Esther has rather than being actually in love because she is found set up on a blind-date at the party with Marco, who almost ‘rapes’ her but she ‘fights back’ but the man she actually has sex with is Irwin. Hence, the situations Esther falls herself into most of the times are silly and humorous but the consequences and the outcomes of certain situations and her reaction to it makes it weary and depressing. Also, the way she interprets some of the things and builds scenarios is funny. Most of the times, she talks herself into it and at other times
Furthermore, as funny as a comedy film can attain, Orlando follows the fake wedding procedures and deeply stares into Ganymede's eyes, almost as if he would try to kiss him as well. When Orlando says: "I take some joy to say you are [Rosalind], because I would be talking of her," in the film he grabs and holds him tightly with the arms around his waist and shows an impulse as if he desires to kiss Ganymede. Notice how in the picture below Orlando seems to be holding a female rather than Ganymede. Technically speaking, Ganymede is Rosalind disguised, but going back to the previously stated conflict, the viewer could easily forget that in this scene, Ganymede and Orlando act out Orlando's love for Rosalind. Nonetheless, Orlando does not know that Ganymede is Rosalind, and yet seems to feel physically attracted to Ganymede as if he liked him more than Rosalind as he claims.
Is it even sincere? Undoubtedly not. The love between Romeo and Juliet definitely does not happen to be true love, proven by the facts that the two are as good as strangers toward each other throughout the story and are far too inexperienced and newly bloomed into this world to make the decision
Stanley who represents realism in this novel and play pops Blanche’s illusion bubble through seeing the realism in scene ten he says: “not once did you pull any wool over this boy’s eyes!” Not only Stanley had broken her world of illusion, but also Mitch who is influenced by Stanley and destroys the protection of darkness by exposing her to the bright light. Stanley bringing up the past contributes to how Blanches ends up, alone and insane expressing the theme that what happened in the past determines the present, and illusion and fantasy directly correlate. Though reality triumphs over fantasy in A Streetcar Named Desire, when the truth comes colliding down on Blanche, she has no choice but to go insane ultimately avoiding the acceptance of
They fell in love with looks, not the heart. In Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, the two main characters are not really in love because they are quiet about their love, they are immature, and they are strangers. First, Romeo and Juliet are not truly in love because they are quiet about their love. For example, Romeo says “Tybalt, the reason that I have
Billy Wilder’s 1959 Some Like It Hot is a romantic comedy that makes a point, consistently throughout its run, to overturn established conventions of genre, playing on not only storytelling tropes but the celebrity status of its stars, Marilyn Monroe (Sugar Kane), Tony Kurtis (Joe) and Jack Lemmon (Jerry). As with any film made under the star system of Hollywood’s Golden Age, certain expectations come with a film depending on which stars are attached to it. Monroe, as Hollywood’s leading sex symbol, attaches to the film a certain expectation of a sexual undercurrent, a certain expectation that the film would cater to ‘the male gaze’, as Laura Mulvey put it. Wilder’s spin on that expectation, in objectifying the two leading men in the same
Holden is infatuated by, not in love with, this girl he meets at the lavender room of the Edmont Hotel. This is another mistake he makes. Love and infatuation are both intense emotions that one feels for another person. These feelings are often confused for one other by many people, but the two feelings differ in their actuality of love, intensity and final outcome. Infatuation is the state of being completely carried away by unreasoning passion or love; addictive love.
In the movie Of Mice and Men, the director Gary Sinise added his own artistic rendition to the original storyline, especially in regards to Curley 's wife. He took out scenes that pictured her in a bad light, and added scenes that shaped her into a more appealing character. He also added text between her and George to add a romantic aspect to the movie; an aspect the book is lacking. In one of the added scenes between Curley 's wife and George, you can pick up the subtle attraction. They act as if they have a forbidden romance, and in a way that’s true; they could never be together, because she’s married and he’s got Lennie.
