The other related text, ‘Up’, a fantasy animated film, written by Bob Peterson, reveals Carl’s transition from denying the death of his wife and regretting not fulfilling their dream of moving to Paradise Falls to unexpectedly making new friends who help him accept the passing of his wife. Both texts and my visual representation reflect the protagonists’ deeper understanding of themselves and others as a result of the transition. ‘The Story of Tom Brennan’ (2005) is about the aftermath of a car accident caused by Daniel Brennan, affecting his family and the town of Mumbilli.

As I read through “Sonny's Blues”, to familiarize myself with the story again, I began to build my argument against the narrator/brother. The conclusion that I have drawn is simply that the brother plays a pivotal role in this story from its beginning to the end.
