He was used to add the romantic element to the movie, which is in huge contrast to history which has no mention of Alice Paul ever being involved with someone during this period while the suffrage movement was on. Overall the film beautifully portrays Alice Paul & her struggle for the 19th Amendment to the American constitution even though the truth was rewritten in some parts, new characters incorporated. This attempt was pretty much successful. The changes & additions made the movie watchable which perhaps
Finally, I thought the acting was amazing, especially by Brigitte Helm. I do not know how any other actress could have portrayed Maria and the machine Maria any better. I liked the dramatic styles of the actors because it added to the drama of the plot. This movie did not have any glaring flaw and the attention to detail from the director, Fritz Lang, allowed the movie to be so great, such as how the workers who had been working walked slower than the fresh workers in the beginning of the film, as pointed out by Mordaunt Hall. Metropolis will probably always be remembered and watched for its awesome sets, memorable themes, outstanding acting, and its influence on the genre of science fiction as a
The General The General (1926) is a highly acclaimed movie by Buster Keaton, and one Keaton believed to be his best work. While still being a comedy movie, The General differs from Keaton’s other movies in featuring more action. Viewers can recognize the common bubbling character typical of his works, but witness a new smooth efficiency to his character’s stunts distinctive to The General. The storyline of the movie proves to be rather simple, allowing the audience to really appreciate the camera work and the theme. As the movie follows clumsy character Johnny win his sweethearts love and fight the North during the Civil War, audiences witness that anyone can be a hero.
Franklin was born into a wealthy family where things came very easily for him. Being his mother’s only child, she tended to spoil him and always give him what he wanted. When Franklin turned eighteen and was taken to Groton, a private school for the wealthy, his mother did not want to see him go. At first, he had a hard time adjusting to life outside of his mother’s protection, but he quickly joined clubs and became more social. During his time at Groton, he followed the news of his distant cousin, President Theodore Roosevelt, as he battled the Spanish at war, though that ended quickly.
Gus Van Sant, the director of the movie, chose to include every detail that he possibly could to relate this movie to American Democracy. He strategically included heterosexual and homosexual actors to spark a political debate. The director clearly wanted to make a point about the discrmination against the LGBTQ society. He emphasizes this by having homosexuals march down the streets of San Francisco, destroying city property.
This is because military spending has always been supported in Congress due to the fear of political attacks. If a Senator voted no no this law because they believed the money could better spent on free college, an advertisement could be ran stating that the Senator in question does not support the military because they voted no on this law. Consequently, politicians in America are in a stranglehold, forced to vote to spend money on things

Starring Ellen Page as the pregnant sixteen year old, Michael Cera as her nerdy best friend who impregnated her, Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner as the couple who wants to adopt Juno’s baby.

Through the use of indie rock music, funny and relatable characters, and quirky settings, we get a coming of age story as we go on a journey alongside Juno through her unplanned pregnancy.
Conclusion a. Statement of relevance: The film Forest Gump, is a very well put together film, that has its own sub plot, and for those who pick up on those queues will appreciate the film even more. It expresses the simplicity of just telling a story, and making into a joy ride full of experiences. This film expresses that art, and entertainment doesn’t have to be over complicated. And when done right it could provide for very adequate
In his plays he illustrates that forced love is not genuine and will cause many challenges to arise, and he also proves that true love will prevail no matter what obstacles stand in its way. During a time when marriage was mainly used to improve one’s social stats or help one live more comfortably, Shakespeare’s ideas were groundbreaking. The reason his ideas overall made an impact was because they were presented in a subtle way that allowed he audience to think on them instead of being overwhelmed by them. Also his points rang true for many in his audience because as Harriet Monroe points out in all of Shakespeare’s works he “[…] present[s] his supreme experience-exquisite emotion, love exalting or degrading, conviction of sin, conviction of fame, the sense of unendurable beauty […]” which are all essentially human emotions (34). The plays Shakespeare presented before his audience express real feelings and emotions which opened his audience’s eyes to a world of love and
For the Democratic party, the super delegate is usually a high ranking individual such as a senator, speaker of the house (if he/ she is a Democrat), minority leader (if he/ she is a Democrat), past president, etc. From my understanding, super delegates are allowed to vote for anybody at the convention, it doesn’t matter what the people in the primary voted, the super delegate can vote anyway they like. For this reason, I oppose the concept of super delegates in our presidential primary process because it puts too much power in the hands of a few individuals vs. the actual voice of the people and it allows for too much corruption.
Warren Buffett is also an active politician and he worked as the economic advisor of the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama. Buffett supported Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008 and helped him since he got over the maximum power of the country. Warren admitted that he grew up in a ‘republican family’ and that he became democrat thanks to his wife Susan. Buffett admitted that as time passed he disagreed many times with the President’s proposals such as the health care program and that he had to work on it so it wouldn’t fail. In 2011, one of the most arguable economic problems the country had to face was the implementation of a new tax plan named the ‘Buffett Rule’.
My interest was probably motivated by the slim chance of her being elected president, and my similar gamble of being a success; especially, in sports which looked as difficult as her becoming President. Also, her documentary film reminded me of how old I am, and has me anticipative about my future well-being; furthermore, in mind to stay flexible and possess an open mind. I was mostly apprehensive about the film, being white an all, and pondered both sides of that little (small) guy humor; moreover, the unappreciative status of it. Being the little guy of sorts, Shirley Chisholm seemed to be a plus for her profession possessing an attractive/infectious voice that inspired determination; also, her humorous female status contrasted well with the other political personalities happening at that time; such as, the Black Panthers. Nevertheless in afterthought of that time period, one can see we’re all dreamers an arenas apart from each other, and for that purpose space and the chance to grow suggests more than just work, rather an understanding of the needs of all people.
Mr. O’Malley, a lifelong Democrat and onetime chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, seemed comfortable playing the insurgent as he took the stage. He urged Democrats to draw a sharp contrast with the discourse among the Republican presidential candidates. “Silence and complacency in the face of hate is not an honorable option,” he said, alluding to Donald J. Trump’s divisive remarks about immigration and women. “We must stand before the American people and show them we have a better way.”
At the age of nine I was a measly fifty-five pounds soaking wet. I remember arriving home after school to what looked to be a Clifford-sized beast. Cautiously, I approached this massive monster and when I got to five feet away he ran towards me and licked my face like the leftovers on your dinner plate. Turns out, this “beast” was a stray Rottweiler from a few miles over with no collar. Because of Winn-Dixie is a story by Kate Dicamillo that captures the love of a little girl and her new stray dog.
