In the movie, The Voices, we meet Jerry Hickfang. Jerry appears like your regular quirky, new guy on the job. He has an innocent, childlike demeanor and always has a smile on his face who seems genuinely pleased to be working in the packing and shipping department of Milton Fixture and Faucet which is a bathtub factory.

In April 1992 after almost two years tramping around the Western part of the United States, Chris Johnson McCandless hitchhiked into into the Alaskan wilderness without proper equipment and never came back out alive. Jon Krakauer author of Into the Wild the biography of Chris McCandless’s stated, that Chris’s personality caused him a lot of conflict during his short life. Chris hated being told what to do, yet loved to succeed and create his own path in life. Though some would argue that McCandless’s was childish and ignorant for committing foolhardy actions, he had rather reasonable motives.
Chris McCandless was a person who wanted to get away from everything in his life.He is still talked about today for no reason. Many people want to hear and see his story in real life but nobody knows what was so special about a guy who went on a journey that he wasn’t prepared for.

Alienation as Karl Marx describes in Communist Manifesto is that “workers are turned into faceless numbers where you are not special and neither is the product of

The adult Scott is the narrator who embodies the voice of a young and naive Scot. However the novel sometimes fluctuates between an innocent child’s point of view and an adult who is experiencing nostalgia. The objective voice of a child, that dominates the novel, allows the reader to experience the racial prejudice occurring in Maycomb. So, with Scout’s voice Lee is able to portray an unbiased opinion of the characters and situations in the novel; thus the reader is able to assess the worth of the characters based on Scout’s interpretation of them. It is up to the reader to decide whether or not they trust Scout’s opinions. Lee manipulates the us so that we can react in a certain way when we read about characters’s personas, opinions and
The three actors that I have decided to identify from the movies, Remember the Titans are: Denzel Washington, Will Patton and Wood Harris. Their classification is that Denzel Washington is categorized as a personality actor. Will Patton is a categorized as an impersonator actor and Wood Harris is also categorized as a personality actor as well. I fell that Denzel Washington is considered to be a personality actor because the role or character that he plays (Coach Herman Boone) is a man who demands perfection from his players on and off of the football field. Washington embodies the role of the character making it hard to tell the difference between the actor and his character or role being play (Goodykoontz & Jacob, 2014). Will Patton is

The character that I chose to write about is Kevin Wendell Crumb from the movie “Split”. Kevin suffers from dissociative identity disorder which causes him to experience 23 different personalities within his mind.
