It’s clear there was an immense amount of historical learning accomplished during the film’s production, and Gutting does not want to discredit this. However, by addressing counterpoints like these, Gutting further enhances his argument as he can explain why his position still holds up despite the drawbacks.

By addressing counterpoints and arguing a somewhat
Cobain tried many times to create his own band, only to fail each time. Later on, Kurt meets someone who happened to like the same types of music and was able to create a band with bassist, Krist Novoselic (Gould, 2018).

She refuses to follow them and present a façade of perfection and happiness.

The producers, it seems while trying to make the movie fit the modern times, they cutout or changed certain things about characters, theme, and symbols that caused it to be slight different from the book. The fact is that no matter how well the movie covers the book, there will always be some noticeable difference, as Fitzgerald’s words from the book paint’s a vivid picture of the scenes, that it’s come to life in the mind of its reader. Therefore, even with a perfect design, cast, and performance, any movie version can only disappoint. One of the biggest difference can be seen in the theme representation of the American Dream. While the movie shows the achievement of the American dream, the book shows its failure.

In consonance with Providentialism, there is no space for women, who are defined by male characters. However, this is problematized in both Gertrude’s and Ophelia’s definition. In the first one, as Rebecca Smith defends, “The traditional depiction of Gertrude is a false one, because what her words and actually create is a soft, obedient, dependent, unimaginative woman […]” (1992: 80). In the second one, she is treated as a possession by her father and brother. However, she uses madness in order to try to define herself.

It is made clear right from the beginning of the film that the importance of words will be carried out throughout the film in a way the audience finds relevant to the modern day.
