Natalie Portman’s quote is one to live by. She is an amazing actress, and a very interesting woman. I chose to wright my paper on her because she is smart, and everything I have learned about her is attention grabbing. She shares a birthday day with my daughter! Which I think is cool. I love her movies. My favorite is: Where the Heart is. Within this paper I’m going to be addressing her obstacles to becoming a successful actress. Also the importance of her education, and tips and inspirations that Natalie can inspire that I can apply to my education and professional success.
In the movie Parenthood (1989), many developmental stages can be observed. With that being said, one character that can be observed is Gil who is middle-aged adult. Gil has a beautiful wife and 3 children. In Santrock (2016, pp. 362-363) security, love, loyalty, and emotional interests are important during middle adulthood. Both Gil and his wife (Karen) believe that they have raised their children the correct way, but it can be seen that some people in his family think otherwise. He also has 2 sisters and 1 brother. In addition, he has a mother, father, nieces/nephews, and a brother-in-law. According to Santrock (2016, p. 342), during middle-aged adulthood adults normally reach peak position at their jobs, but in this case the promotion that Gil wanted was given to someone else, so Gil struggled with this concept of not moving up. Also, his household seems to be hectic and not perfect, but somehow he pushes through (Parenthood, 1989). According to Santrock (2016, p. 354), Erickson’s developmental stage that pertains to Gil is generativity vs. stagnation. In this stage, adults feel a sense of wanting to leave their legacy when they are gone (generativity), but at the same time feel as though they have not done anything for the next generation (stagnation). In the movie Parenthood (1989), Gil can be seen exhibiting this developmental stage in various scenes, but there is one seen in particular that stands out. Him and his wife are called to school for a meeting with the

Because I follow the life and career of Tammy Gillis so closely, I was well aware of her current film, Menorca.

Unfortunately, the AIDS-stricken director died before the film was completed. This film operates as a kind of last will and testament for Marlon Riggs. “He bequeaths the idea that rigid
The opening scene was powerful and dramatic, and has a beautiful visual, especially with the sets, and cinematography. The actor Julianne Hough was very engaging in the film and played her role outstanding. The role Julianne played is very important because it shows what a woman in an abusive relationship goes through, and a person who watches the film and is in an abusive relationship can possibly open their eyes and help them realize that they can escape out of that unhealthy/abusive relationship. Furthermore, the musical and cinematography of the scenes helped orchestrate each moment of the film in a unique and exceptional way. In the role being played by David Lyons, his skills of acting seemed very realistic and captures the attention of the audience, and were a highlight in every scene he was featured in. Another key downfall that the audience may notice is the age difference between actor Josh Duhamel and actress Julianne Hough. Besides the age difference between the actors, Josh Duhamel played an excellent role as a father to his two kids. Compared to most romantic movies, this film seemed to have its own unique love story and a shocking twist.
