In Love Actually one of the characters uses large signs to let the woman he fell for know how he truly felt about her and couples all around use the same sort of signs to convey their feelings to their significant other or a crush.

In the book and movie, To Kill a Mockingbird I find it very easy to have empathy for the characters. The characters that I can empathise the most with are Scout, Jem and Mayella. Scout and Jem are very easy for myself, and many others to empathise with because most people either have siblings or very close friends that they either get annoyed of, or are very protective of. Mayella on the other hand is a different story, most people can’t understand the reasoning of why she lie to the judge and jury, but I can. She was scared, and she thought the only way to get out of her situation was to lie, which many of us do when scared.

“The writers, I do believe, who get the best and most lasting response from readers are the writers who offer a happy ending through moral development. By a happy ending, I do not mean mere fortunate events: a marriage, or a last-minute rescue from death; but some kind of spiritual reassessment or moral reconciliation, even with the self, even at death.” – Fay Weldon Imagine one Janie Crawford, back in Eatonville, once again under the watchful eye of the jealous townspeople, scrutinized and harshly judged.
