One example of dramatic irony was when Don Pedro pretended to be Claudio at the ball, to try and woo Hero. Claudio saw Hero and instantly fell in love with her. Don Pedro told Claudio that he would wear a mask to the ball, pretend to be him, and woo her so that she will want to marry him. This impacted the audience because they knew that is was really Don Pedro under the mask, and it left them wondered if, how, and when Hero was going to find out.

Bulman is based on why Hollywood films represent students and education in constant way that can be predicted by the actors/plot social class based on American culture. The difference among urban, suburban, and private school genres are separated and compared to find their consistencies in films. Bulman uses Durkheim’s theory of individualism (utilitarian and expressive) to indicate how individuals are dependent on one another and although it is a product of social life, it can restrict some from recognizing their connection to the social life. This foundation of individualism guides the reader as the book further breaks down how the films ‘choose’ their plots to portray a stereotyped social class. Urban schools are in need of a savior, suburban schools have student heroes and do not need education, and the private school that challenges the culture of privilege are the three sections
Through many generations of teenagers they have all replicated the importance to our younger generation about how the choices and steps that now will shape us and who we are going to be in the future. “The Dark Horse” directed by James Napier Robertson, shows us the example of how we should always choose by what we think is right for us and not what other people want us to choose through peer pressure. “The Outsiders” by Graeme Lay replicates to us how when making choices we need to consider the effects on not just us, but to the ones that are around us, and to not be so selfish.

Another example the movie talked about was the fact of leadership. For instance, Dr. Judy Chu quotes, “In good times guys are like really close to each other. But when things get all a bit worse you’re on your own.”. Boys make sides or teams as kids, singling out the ones that are not as fast or as fun as the others. When this happens, they make believe that the other kid is somehow different.
John Hughes’s film The Breakfast Club (1985) resonates with certain modern-day stereotypes of high school students. The film also reflects on how much damage that social status and labels have on people, especially during adolescence. Hughes’s film breaks down the emotional barriers between ordinary high school students of different backgrounds through typecasting.

The “juxtaposition” of these emotional peaks and the “quirks” of teenage life build an image of a girl being thrust out of the naivety of her teen years too soon (199). This image being reinforced via “visual cues” such as Juno calling “an abortion clinic, on a phone that looks like a hamburger” and her birth scene, where “she wears long, brightly striped socks” (199).
