From the start of John and Kathy’s relationship, Kathy is a main contributor to the communication issues the couple has throughout their marriage. Even though Kathy knows about his horrifying past, she never does anything to help John cope with his issues, but instead makes them worse during their life together. In John and Kathy’s marriage, they do not talk about the issues they are having, nor do they put any effort in to try and fix it. When John is in Vietnam, their relationship only starts to fail even more than it already has. John attempts to communicate with Kathy while he is away, but Kathy for the most part lets him down through some of her degrading letters.
She also, obeyed her mother’s request, to bounce whenever she was bullied. To bounce means to ignore and pretend it wasn’t even there. Evyn kept to herself a lot. She never told or showed people how miserable she felt about moving. When Evyn first saw Eleni, with her red lipstick, black pants, and high heels, she thought Eleni looked nothing like a college professor and a mother.
You might think you are not fan girl material and you might want some help, but do not worry; everyone has chosen the fan girl life nowadays! Just ask those Bieber-crazy fans who cut themselves when news broke out about their idol making a bad decision. Just think about is, now you can turn into an obsessed fan just like them! The first big step in becoming a fan girl includes always being hypersensitive. Your idol easily compares to a newborn child who needs love and protection.
She was very rude to him and would not even speak to him. It was not until Derek finally cracked and had told his mother that Morso was the only reason he was still alive and he was the one person that was always there for him and he was like family to Derek, that she realised there was nothing bad about Morso. The thing that made it the hardest was when his mother sent them to school almost as soon as they had returned. They were not ready for school or anything like that, it was even hard for them to try and socialise with new people. Derek and Morso’s lives had been so unstructed, that the common school setting was not appropriate for them.
Fighting is never the answer. Greasers have always had it the hard way but when they stick together things turn out to be okay. (compound sentence) They all have hearts of stone. (metaphor) They have to deal with stereotypes and they never fit in. They do not have families that care about them or want them.
Julie Vignon in Trois Couleurs: Bl*e*u Julie Vignon is a character going through major depressive episode. The things she did have to suffer from caused this change and there are many traces of her having this depressive disorder throughout the movie. First of all, it should be mentioned that Julie Vignon never really smiles throughout the movie and she talks without any sign of enthusiasm, and only does things to get her mind away from her husband and daughter. She does not do anything that might give her joy and although she does not want to accept her loss. I believe this is more like a denial stage than being strong enough to take it.
Their daughters find their inner strength and overcome their own obstacles as well, with nothing but themselves and their mother’s anecdotes to get them through it all. Three of the daughters also end their primary marriages and pursue new ones. Almost none of the Asian stereotypes surrounding women are perpetuated here. The only stereotype shown is overcome and pushed aside as the characters mature into stronger women. Joy Luck Club shows this transformation and rejection, not of the stereotype, of the role and oppression of their situation which causes them to act in accordance of that stereotype.
All these questioned lingered in their heads, and both of them knew this; none of them ever really knew what to say. Their love never disintegrated it seemed to grow stronger, but most of their conversations seemed to be through their eyes. Francisco always knew when Irene was about to burst in tears. She knew that despite writing her story, no one would ever listen, no one would ever know of the horrors Irene and Francisco had seen and experienced
Biff and Willy often find it very challenging to get along, and most of the time we see Linda trying to resolve their differences. Although while Linda is only trying to do good amongst her family by nurturing them with her advice, they usually do not take on board what she has said, and rather just ignore her completely. A feminist could argue that to Biff and Willy, they think that they’re putting her ‘in her place’. A place where perhaps her opinion does not matter. Linda occasionally argues her point across until she is yelling at members of the family and this may be because she is frustrated because she is never heard when she tries to give her opinion.
