The film, Precious, is a powerfully charged story that delves into the family dynamics of a 16-year-old girl and her struggles to survive an onslaught of treacherous experiences. Throughout the film, the viewer is enveloped in a dramatic web of extreme situations, experienced by the main character, and those to whom she is close. The themes of domestic violence, rape, incest, drug addiction, gambling, poverty, social justice, social services, housing and education are laced together throughout the story. Particularly poignant attention is paid to various systems that help shape the experiences of the characters. The social services industry, and its associated workers, educators and administrators, set the foundation for the social themes that are highlighted by this film.
I’m grabbing the attention of the reader. In this play our town the play our town, Thornton Wilder communicates the theme of life by having a narrator help describe the story and what is going to happen by showing the characters at the start of their relationship, telling how each relationship relates to the story, and by explaining their life.
did the same thing in some agency they do not let you accept anything even if it is tradition in the family. Walt would of course have to turn them down more politely. Later in the movie we see that the family keep bringing food to Walt and he said no once again if they kept insisting Welt might have had to ask for the family to be transferred to a new social worker because the relationship wouldn't work (Karen K. Kirst-Ashman,1970). Furthermore, as the movie progresses we see that Walt starts to become a type of mentor to Thao. Walt asked him what would he like to become in the future and he said he would like to become a lawyer and Walt told him that his sun is a lawyer he told him that he doesn't think he will become one.
This book is different than previous books i have read before so the themes in this book offer new territory i never expected to read in a classroom. The later 3 chapters we were suppose to read didn’t really provide a lot of details for my lens to be used to analyze for Gender/feminist views/ideas/roles but the chapters did provide interesting “relationships” between family members. I was sort of caught by surprised by how open and sudden these short segments of the story were while reading. I am going to be focusing on character interactions. I want to begin by looking at a quote from the first chapter. On page 23 Macon and ruth are in the Doctor’s house who earlier in the book killed himself by jumping off the hospital roof of where he
The poem ‘a marriage’ by Michael Blumenthal presents feelings about marriage in many different ways, there is a strong feeling that the poet believes marriage is a positive thing as it helps provide support and help, this is shown when he uses ‘the ceiling’ as a metaphor for a persons problems and says “you are holding up a ceiling”. He then goes onto say “a man or a woman walks into the room and holds up their arms to the ceiling beside you” this metaphor shows marriage as a support system and that by a couple being together its easier for them to deal with their issues as they have someone to share them with. Blumenthal presents his strong positive feelings about marriage through his use of metaphors and using ‘blood’ as energy as when you
The Comedy of Errors is a significant work of Shakespeare, because it was his gateway to works with more significance, depth, and characters with definite characteristics. In The Comedy of Errors, the character of Adriana is presented. Adriana is best known for being wife of E. Antipholous, but Adriana is also Luciana’s sister. Adriana is so significant in this play, because although this play was a comedy, Adriana’s role in this play is highly emotionally based. Adriana challenges the roles of the standard woman at the time and of a woman in her marriage. Adriana is outspoken and is not afraid to be very opinionated. Throughout the course of the play, she focuses
Everyone knows that in order to win a baseball game there has to be a good coach, right? A family system is a lot like a baseball team. In order to be successful, and to win in life, a family has to work together, and there must be a coach, someone to lead the team. How can the team be successful? In his article, Circumplex Model of Marital & Family Systems, Olson says, (2000), “Family cohesion, flexibility and communication are the three dimensions in the Circumplex Model.” (pg. 144) So each team must be flexible, work together, be devoted to one another, and communicate in order to thrive. However, there are people who believe they know more than the coach.
Imagine a house. A townhouse in a rather affluent part of Washington DC. This house doesn’t have children or pets, but an influential middle-aged married couple occupying the space. On a particular night, the husband comes home from work. His face is wracked with exhaustion and irritation. When he opens the door to his house, his eyes meet with his wife’s, who is sitting down in their living room. He opens his mouth to talk but she cuts him off, asking why he has not called her. Her voice is aching with betrayal and anger. She berates him, noting he is more perceptive in these situations. She wants to see him fired up and angry, not hopeless and self deprecating. He apologizes, in which she responds with a “No. I won’t accept that… My husband doesn’t apologize, even to me.” (House of Cards 2013) She then retires to their bedroom, glancing at him once before ascending the long staircase.
Modern Family TV shows have been a very popular comedy series, which introduced a show that sounds like an attempt to portray a more “Modern” contemporary view of American families. In both shows I watched: “Do Not Push” and “Marco Polo”. Modern Family deals with the traditional family as portrayed by the Dunphys with a mom, dad and three children; a homosexual family with one adopted daughter, the Printhett-Tuckers and a mixed marriage family with one child, the Pritchetts, an older white male remarried a much younger Colombian trophy wife who had a son from her first marriage.
The play Our Town shows the love story of a young couple.

In the play Our Town, there are many themes, but all the smaller themes derive from one major theme, and that is love and marriage.
