We enjoyed watching it though it made us shed into tears. Overall, Awakenings is an entertaining, yet poignant film that is eloquently laced with poetry and a beautiful score by Randy Newman. This is easily the most powerful tearjerker that I 've ever seen, thanks in large part to the brilliant performances by Williams and De Niro. But to be fair, the whole cast was excellent, and they were helped by a script that was nearly perfect. For me, the scenes with Miller proved to be the most emotional, but really, the whole film was heartwarming or heartbreaking on some level.
To Kill A Mockingbird: Read it, Don’t Watch it. Have you ever watched the movie adaptation of a book, only to find that the book is far superior to it’s movie counterpart? Oftentimes when a book is adapted into a movie, there are some differences between the two. Sometimes the differences are subtle, but other times the differences are dramatic and can affect the development of the story. An example of this is the movie adaptation of the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
The tone of his voice is clear and confident, and when speaking to the group, he appears to feel good about himself, thereby making himself at the center of attention. According to Adler and Proctor, "People who feel good about themselves have positive expectation about themselves have positive expectations about how they will communicate." This is absolutely true in this particular scene, as we see evidence of Tommy 's audience enjoying themselves through his funny banter. However, despite his likable appearance and
You could say that a lot of his personality shines through in his acting, making it easy to argue that Louise Fletcher, who plays a very authoritarian role, might have had to face a greater challenge acting out her character. Therefore, perhaps, her acting should be considered better than Nicholson's. Regardless of this, both actors play their roles very well, getting the viewer immersed in the story. One
The movie just feels like a different story that way, but they did keep the story of Dally and his legacy mostly the same, and with all the characters the same it almost feels like the same rowdy crew on a new adventure, but it still doesn’t help that so much was warped and cut. They are the same story just the movie is just the story of Dally while the book goes into it a bit more, and shows how his choices affected his friends and how they eventually got over it. It just cut to Johnny’s note to Pony and he just started writing. It all eventually just turned into a slap in the face, but no movie can live up to the original do to everything that has to happen even to get a movie going and recording, and The Outsiders is one of the best examples of
You now know that the Call of the Wild book was very different from the movie. You also now know that differences always occur in book/movie crossovers. You now also know that the book was published in 1903 so there were things the movie could not show or express. Most important of all though, you now know John Thornton was important to the book, but he was the movie’s main focus. Those were just some details that show no matter what it is if you try to cross over a book to a movie there will be
Despite some differences between Minnie Foster from Trifles by Susan Glaspell and Ruth from Still Stands the House by Gwen Pharis Ringwood, they have many similarities. Although their relationships with their respective spouses are in stark contrast, they do share qualities like their seemingly inadequate femininity and lonesome lives. Firstly, Ruth Warren, the wife of Bruce Warren can be described as sweet, caring and even somewhat passive. When Hester Warren, her sister in law treats her coldly she replies with kindness, only saying “Please—I’ve never had a sister, and when Bruce told me he had one, I thought we’d be such friends—” (Ringwood, 6). Her characteristics also help maintain a tranquil relationship with her husband despite the many tribulations they face in their lives.
Mercutio is a good friend to Romeo. The role he plays is a major impact in the story. He can be considered Mother Nature because he can be witty, funny and of course, serious all at the same time. He is an audience favorite because of his witty remarks and attitude. His death is so important because of his curse he puts on both families.
Moreover, Elisa wanted to see if she was still as pretty she was by seducing her own husband. 2) Although, the essay “The Swimmer” is not one of the best essays I have ever read, it still a good essay overall. I like the storyline because it’s really realistic, and easy to read. This essay resemble a lot
As already mentioned, one of the best attributes of Helena Bonham Carter’s performance is the humanisation of Miss Havisham represented through her acting. She shows different emotions of Miss Havisham, therefore contrasting with other performances that only show a deathly serious character. Thus it is possible for the spectator to understand the complexity of her character, and not seen her only as a mad evil ‘creature’. The scene with little Estella at two coming to Satis House emphasises even more that aspect in Miss Havisham, and plays a key role in this film. Gillian Anderson’s performance can be considered particularly original because she gives Miss Havisham a child-like aspect, with a little girl’s voice.
