The background colors are varying shades of pink hinting at one of the main scenes in the movie, Shelby’s wedding, in which her colors were “blush and bashful” or “pink and pink” as her mother M’Lynn described it, stating that the sanctuary looked like it had been “hosed down with Pepto Bismol”. Ultimately, Steel Magnolias is more of a tear jerker than a comedy, but the poster does a good job of not divulging too much of what the actual movie is about. Apparently the poster did the job it was meant to do as the movie became the fourteenth highest grossing film of 1989. It pulled people in and made people fall in love with the
In light of examining the portrayal of attachment in Baby Boom and comparing it to attachment theory my final conclusion is that this film shows a roughly accurate picture of attachment. It shows how a mother becomes sensitive to their infant 's state of mind, infant coping mechanisms, and demonstrates ethology at play. However, the picture it paints is incredibly sped up and idealistic. Attachments rarely if ever form as smoothly and quickly as they do in this film and many of the rough patches of building an attachment are either smoothed over or left out. When viewing this film, we should enjoy it for the heartwarming film that it is, take away the truth about attachment that it contains, but also remember that attachment doesn’t happen quite like this in real
Lucy’s character compares to other housewives on TV in a few ways, all of which are admirable. Probably the first thought that comes to one’s mind when thinking of “I Love Lucy” is Lucille and her hilarious facial expressions, over the top antics and perhaps her flamboyant way of dressing. All of this alludes at such a colorful personality (visible even in black and white) that was not common during this time for most characters, especially not for women. However, the difference in Lucy’s character compared to others on TV at the time is greater than her comedic contributions (huge though they may be). One way that Lucy very greatly compared to other women on TV at the time is her relationship with her husband.
The way advertising is done in the film to me started off great and then turned into more obvious which I believe was one of the things that got Truman curious to what was really happening. One main example was when his wife offered him some coco in which Truman asked her “what are you talking about? !” Which then lead to an argument that cause his wife to scream out “DO SOMETHING!” Most people I believe realize that advertising has sneaked up into every aspect of our lives but more than ever on the internet and reality television. I can’t count the amount of times I open a browser and see some sort of advertising pops up which to me, are probably the most annoying thing in the world to even till this day. However, to others it has become a part of them, something they have become immune to like it’s not even there or they’re the complete opposite and click on the bait time after time like a mad

“The show centers on the lives of a handful of (mostly) feminine, (almost entirely) white, and (unrealistically) economically flush lesbians living in Los Angeles.” (Kessler) Although this show aired before my queer emergence, I felt obligated to watch the entirety of all 6 seasons, so I know my L Word tidbits.

Sarah did a decent job in portraying India in all of its contrast, religious, billions of people, and colour. The book is entertaining but it is often depicted in the opinion of a spoilt Westerner who has experience childhood in a well-to-do family. There is also no attempt to understand India outside of her limited interface with the country. Besides, she frequently make gross generalization such as “India has a hair fetish” (pp97) and “Indian society forces its middle class to live an extended adolescence.”
