The relationship in the film is between Edward and William Bloom who relationship has not been so easy due to William getting tired of the stories his father constantly tells to him and others. Not until the end of the film is where William finds out that the stories his father has been telling contain some type of truth in them and that his stories were a way to keep his life immortal. This theme is enjoyable as well because it also feeds the question to the audience whether or not a person truly knows their parent.

The Choices We Make in Life Have you ever found it interesting to notice two people whose lives start out close to the same but end so differently? Jurgis is the main character in the book The Jungle. The book was written by Upton Sinclair and it portrays the horrors of factory life in the early twentieth century.

Having enough, Moses leads his people away from Egypt by parting the Red Sea. After settling down, God gives Moses the 10 Commandments as a set of rules for him and his people to live by. The directors are trying to tell the story of Moses, a former Prince of Egypt who finds out he is Hebrew and leaves his city to find out a way to free his people, who are being used as slaves. They tell his story by adding in some fun factors to an originally somber story with singing, beautiful landscapes, and some comedic scenes. I think that they chose this historical piece because it helps kids get a wider view of the history that their parents were most likely raised on.
The main characters overall seem quite likable, Huck and Jim being the most well liked within the tale. Although this tale seems a tad far fetched it is an intriguing read. The plot seems impossibly unrealistic because it is incredibly difficult to envision a world where a teenage boy is able to fake his own death and live off of the bare minimum for such a long period of time. The obscure nature of this tale is actually what draws me to want to read it. I enjoy the Southern dialect utilized within the dialogue because it makes the novel authentic.
In fact, this novel is about just that. Published in 1937, Of Mice and Men tells a story about two migrant ranch workers, George and Lennie, who relocate to different areas in California in search of new opportunities during the Great Depression in America. What makes this novel so interesting and significant, is the use of foreshadowing. Essentially every single character plays a huge role in this novel and every single death gives us another clue to the ending. Without Steinbeck’s foreshadowing, one could not predict the final piece to the story and one’s perspective would be a lot different.
