Instead, of men working and the women being the at home enjoying the life, it was the total opposite. In this film its content isn’t your average story plot, making scenarios interesting for the audience to pay attention to pay attention. The scene where Maximo tries to teach 6 yr old Hugo how to flirt with girls is a great example of how “directing the broader physical comedy and sweeter bonding sequences between Maximo and Hugo… distant personalities never manage to coalesce into self-contained whole” (Rechtshaffen). Apparently, the film “has commitment issues in its desire to be outrages comedy and tender family” (Rechtshaffen) with having both types of entertainment featured in the movie its throws in a couple twist.
Though all of these examples of text in the novella Of Mice and Men we can tell that Steinbeck was passionate about displaying the american dream in as many ways as possible. Whether it be a dream to have a happy life or just a dream to pet bunnies each dream was shown in their own
In John Steinbeck's novel Of Mice and Men he describes two characters, Slim and Curley's wife. Steinbeck uses imagery to portray the negative and positive differences between the two characters. The character Slim is relatively shown in a majestic light, hence "the prince of the ranch". But in opposition to this Curley's wife was depicted as having hair like "sausages" with "rouged lips", not at all similar to royalty. Another main contrast is that while Slim's character description was more directed towards his persona, Curley's wife had an introduction based on her appearance.
Aunt Clara is seen as a positive figure at the beginning of the novel because she is a mother-like figure for George and Lennie and provides a further background of their relationship. She signifies that Lennie did, in fact, have nurturing upbringing, despite his mental disorders, as George says to Lennie, “she gave you a rubber mouse” when he kept asking for mice to pet. Although Aunt Clara is seen as a positive authority figure since she is the kin to George and Lennie, by the end of the novel one can note Aunt Clara tormenting Lennie while he is in abject misery after strangling Curley’s wife. In Lennie’s hallucinations, Aunt Clara says, “But you don’t never take no care. You do bad things” and “All the time he coulda had such a good time if it wasn’t for you”.
John Ernst Steinbeck Jr a talented American writer who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1969 for his imaginative and realistic style of writings. Steinbeck has been admired by other writers for his sympathetic humour and a social perception in his novels such as ‘Of Mice and Men’ and ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ and other novels he wrote too. ‘Of Mice and Men’ is one of many published novels that Steinbeck has written from an incomprehensible perspective usually called the objective third person. At the time this was atypical for a novel, to take this approach because is typically found in film and plays, which aids to expound why ‘Of Mice and Men’ was effortlessly altered into a movie. In this review, I would examine the plot, characters, themes and the style of writing in ‘Of Mice and Men’ by John Steinbeck.
The most beneficial result from this fight is the fact that it kept Curley from ratting them out, “I think you got your han’ caught in a machine” (64). Before Lennie’s fight, Curley chickens out of a fight with Slim, so when Slim said this to Curley after Lennie’s fight, he meant that if somebody were to ask Curley about his hand, he would say it got caught in a machine. If he had told that Lennie had done it, Slim would have told everyone about how Curley chickens out of a fight with him. So after all, Lennie’s actions of fighting had helps him out because it kept Curley, their biggest problem, out of the equation. A final example of how this fight is the right choice is because it shows what Curley had become, “Curley sat down on the floor looking in wonder at his crushed hand” (64).
Considering other movies from the last few years such as Non-Stop or The Wolf of Wall Street it is easy to spot that men and women are still often presented in a typical gender manner. Nevertheless, recently the representation of female characters has also been improving and women are gradually becoming more prominent in the movie industry. In Hollywood, there was a certain rise of casting women as the main characters who take matters into their own hands and are no longer waiting for men to save the day. By making female protagonists as strong and independent, the stereotypes as women being weaker and submissive to men are subverted. What is more, movies whose protagonist is a woman often present the reversal of archetypal gender roles.
She is inspiring to Edna. Mademoiselle Reisz makes Edna cry with her beautiful music. She encourages Edna to pursue her career in art. These two women in Edna’s life constantly pull her in two different directions. Edna becomes even more conflicted because she does not know who to listen to.
We see that all of these characters and their situations depict that a dream of an American is not always possible. Steinbeck shows that the unrealized dream was a major part of life in the 1930s and in the book Of Mice and
This affirmative action has worked to great effect, creating a more racially-just and diverse society than otherwise would have been the case. “Many view Affirmative Action as an expensive exercise that violates principles of merit of equal opportunity and that, in any event, has not achieved its original goals as enunciated by President Johnson in 1965. Further, there is no agreement or clarity about what, if anything should be put in its place” (Katznelson, n.d). The almost exclusively white-targeted nature of the extensive federal legislation before 1965 has largely been ignored by policy critics, just as it was ignored by Lyndon Johnson.
Despite multicultural demographics throughout the world, Hollywood film industries still cast white actors over People of Colour, even if the role was meant for them. For example in the 2015 film Pan, the character of Tiger Lily is described as a “Native-American daughter of a powerful chief” (Reilly 2014). However casting directors used white actress Rooney Mara for

While many of the women follow their career most men are stuck with the job they could only get. Furthermore, Marilyn’s has always been seen as a homemaker by her kids and Marilyn knew that. The oldest child Nath especially consider his mother as a homemaker. When his mother comes back from her long gone disappearance he thinks to himself “His mother is home, and tomorrow there would be hard-boiled eggs for breakfast, hamburgers and hot dogs for supper, strawberry shortcake for dessert.” (Ng 148).
