In “Part 1: The Window”, Mrs. Ramsay is seen using her deft social skills and memorizing beauty to influence other people, make personal connections, and impact the world around her through other people. This form of art is rather intangible
Consequently, when Mamaine-Nainaine informs Babette “when the figs were ripe Babette might go to visit her cousins down on the Bayou-Lafourche” (25), this was Mamaine-Nainaine limiting Babette’s freedom until she is mature enough. Meanwhile, during this age women had a restriction on how they could feel and act their whole life. Nevertheless Chopin shows a girl who has the privilege of going where she truly wants to go during this narrative after developing into a sophisticated young women. Another way freedom interprets this story is using religious aspects. When Kate Chopin refers to the “la Madone” (26), this is a statue that represents Mary and Jesus when he was a child.
There is also a theme of an awkward relationship with the mother that I was able to relate to and helped provide sustenance for the story. In “Flying Over Water” the main character is awkward, which is another relatable aspect, and is going through puberty and doesn’t agree with her mother’s rules and opinions. She only wishes to swim away and be her own self. A story such as that relates to the awkward time of puberty and growing up, where you try to look for your own voice in a big world. Klages states that the stories in Portable Childhoods were “based on her mother-daughter relationship.” I maintain that because of this approach Klages stories are strong and lasting and are a great collection to
Mental health can be taken for granted, until people realize that the world is full of humans with mental issues. It puts a strain on how relationships are formed and how others are portrayed/judged. The story Silver Water is of a girl (Rose) who develops a serious mental issue in her teenage years. It shows the effects her mental break has on her surroundings, but mainly her family, who suffer severely as well. Amy Bloom writes,¨She (Rose) had her first psychotic break when she was 15.¨ Prior to this mental break, Violet thought of Rose as a talented and beautiful sister; she begins to feel distant towards her in the midst of Roseś crisis but she always is willing to help in any way she can.
Munro has caught the complexities inside this sort of family bond by her utilization of third-individual portrayal and the moving of various tenses in the story. The story starts by promptly presenting both of the fundamental characters, Flo and Rose by describing how Flo entered Rose's life after her mom kicked the bucket. In doing as such the storyteller acquaints the peruser with Flo's identity in the perspective of Rose. Rose believes that Flo is dumb, despises her, and is simply down right irritating. The story advances by getting into the more profound issues that causes these two characters to detest each other.
She uses a young campfire girl by the name of Marian who visits two old women at an Old Ladies’ Home to portray the selfishness amongst teenagers because she only visits them to increase her score. Welty mentioned that she carried a plant with her and forgot to look at it to show that she didn’t want to be there. Marian doesn’t really speak because she is focused on the surroundings and the old women who scare her. She first states that the Home is “on the outskirts of town” and this tells us that it’s far and she uses visual imagery to describe it saying that it has a “prickly dark shrub”, “whitewashed brick” and it “reflected the winter sunlight like a block of ice” which all imply that the Home is old, has no warmth and is isolated. Marian’s sees “loose, bulging linoleum on the floor” on her way to the room and Welty used the simile, “there was a smell in the hall like the interior of a clock” to describe how dirty it was.
The lead, Takeyuki Higurashi, played by Takayuki Hamatsu, is a rather likeable presence. The tyrannical nature of his character during the movie-within-the-movie is downplayed in favor of a more laidback and thoughtful persona during the behind-the-scenes work. As we get the reasoning why with the backstory, the change is still fun to witness first-hand in a stellar performance. The other big standout performance here is Nao played by Harumi Syuhama as his retired-actress wife who now works as the makeup artist on the shoot who gets involved in the film through rather dubious means. The difference between her sweet motherly duties and the more tyrannical she becomes in the role allows for a nice change that gives her a rather impressive attribute here.
Miss.Spink says, “You know, Coraline, you are in great danger.” This happened in the graphic novel before she enters and discovers the other world. Without the stone with the hole in it, Coraline finds out by herself about the actual dangers in the other world and learns herself how the stone helps for bad things by seeing through the stone.In the graphic novel, when Coraline is locked away in the mirror, the ghost children whispered in her ear to look through the stone with the hole in it which is how she later remembered to do so. Also, Coraline returned to her normal world because of her remembering the stone in her pocket. In the movie however, Coraline somehow finds the motive on her own to look through that stone as well as making the right choice not to stay in the other world knowing that something is wrong. This makes the character of Coraline more thoughtful then that of the graphic novel and adds on the her heroic nature more.
As a 13 year-old girl, she “is an author first and a girl on the verge of entering adolescence second” (Finney 3). She misunderstands the quarrel between her sister Cecilia and Robbie beside the old diving pool and considers herself as a savior to save her sister from the evil Robbie. Ian McEwan firstly uses the third-person viewpoint to tell the story and then he changes to retell it from the viewpoint of Briony. The differences demonstrate by the two viewpoints highlight the prejudice and misunderstanding that Briony possesses. This incident marks the beginning of Briony’s mistake.
Chuck argued that it’s a win-win situation because he needed a lot of money and Lawrence needed someone to be his driver. From the explanation above, it can be stated that the ‘Smart People’ movie contains the illocutionary acts which had been classified and explained above. Those utterances depict us the use of language that used as a tool of communication. Then, we can conclude that this movie, as other kinds of literary works, is a mean through which the director intended to convey his message through the dialogue or the conversation that is performed by its actors and actresses. Furthermore, the conversation creates the plot of the whole story in the movie.
