This is portrayed by hinting at Annie’s traumatizing past. Even before Annie was sent to a poorhouse for the ill and disabled, her father was incredibly abusive towards her. “Annie” the biography states, “‘You little devil’, her father often shouted, and tried to control her by beatings so severe that, to save her, Annie’s mother would try to hide her little daughter” (Lash 438). From her early childhood, Sullivan faced hardships everyday regarding family life, eventually resulting in her
The element of lighting is a sophisticated element to a movie. It has the power to control what you see and also overwhelm you when it needs to. During my discovery of this movie, I found that colors told the story just as much as the dialogue. It just goes to show that the most significant films cover all the ends of telling a story through the medium of film. Now the fun part, the analyst of The Shawshank Redemption’s use of light and color in painting the picture of its theme of hope.
Tourneur makes great use of it throughout the entirely at-night San Francisco sequence, enhancing danger, suspense, and dread at every turn. But one of the most important uses of shadows comes towards the end of the film, when Ann meets up with Jeff in a forest at night. Purely based on the number of shadows, this scene wins. Tree trunks, branches, and twigs draw endless lines across the bodies of both actors. It’s beautifully shot, but significantly, it’s the only time Ann is ever truly enveloped in shadows.
Symbolism, as used in this movie, added a large amount of depth to the movie and individual scenes. The most prominent example of this can be seen with the depiction of Ellen. Throughout the movie the costuming and makeup used by Lily Collins in her portrayal of Ellen reflects the status of Ellen’s mental and physical health. In many scenes where Ellen creates strong relationships, she is dressed in bright clothes and has makeup that brings out her features making her look more attractive. Contrary though, in scenes where Ellen takes a step back her clothes become drab and layered.
Her grandma tries to warn her when she first meets Glen about the trouble he could be, but she ignores her saying that her granny doesn’t know him like she does. Glen and Anney get married, and Glen becomes quite skilled with hiding what goes on behind closed doors with Bone. He is not afraid to openly abuse her in front of Anney though, who then does nothing short of yelling. Glen grabs Bone drags her into the bathroom, and slams her shoulder into the frame. Anney cries for him to stop, but does nothing to stop him from beating her daughter (Allison
Finally, although the sad stories Anne listens s the adults whisper, she digs deep to the bottom of her heart to search for the good that true people actually have. Anne describes “ Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” (263) With all the negativity and hatred surrounding her, Anne begins to alter her opinions of the evil people because she knows the
The miscommunication further develops people’s relationships divergent from the original intent of the actions, arousing disputes. In William Gibson’s play based on Helen Keller’s life, The Miracle Worker, the characters also struggle with similar relationship conflicts concerning the idea of visible love. The intense interactions between characters illustrate possible hostility, but in fact, convey one character’s sincere endearment to another with love mistakenly translated. In other words, when simply evaluating the exteriors, Gibson’s dramatic techniques portray the treatment of love as hatred, but when explored internally, it’s in-depth essence is revealed.
Growing up in a place like Tewksbury had emotionally scarred Annie’s well-being. Fortunately, the determination she had within her had shown through with her results. The results concluded in her escaping the bad part of her life to help a child in need. In serious situations, people must have determination to overcome
She can’t wear red lipstick in front of Nathan because he would find it immodest and would punish her. She has to hide her true self to avoid the wrath of her husband. Unfortunately, because she has to hide her true self so often, she's started to lose pieces of who she once was. Orleanna was “so thoroughly bent to the shape of marriage [she] could hardly see any other way to stand” (201). She does not remember her single life, and has become so deeply invested in this dominating marriage that her life bent under the will of her husband is the only way she knows how to
Anne wants to have a nice and wonderful life, but she went into hiding so now she can't have as happy of a life like she was wanted to have. Also, in this quote it describes how she thought her life
