For example I recently saw the phenomenal film Their Eyes Were Watching God. Halle Berry stars in this version of Zora Neale Hurston's novel, adapted for television and produced by Oprah Winfrey. The story centers on Janie Crawford (Berry), a free-spirited woman who lives her life on her own terms. Refusing to accept her place as a black woman in the 1920s, Janie lives life to its fullest and experiences a journey filled with great joy and unbearable heartache. I enjoyed the casting choices because the actors and scenery joined to convey a part of the movies theme.
Eisenstein has become so thoroughly identified with montage in standard histories of film that it is unsettling to discover that his first attempt at film-making was found wanting precisely in that area, (Nesbet,2007) Lev Kuleshov claimed that Eisenstein was someone who knew how to work with single frames but did not yet have proper control over editing techniques. The recombination of the film actor’s body according to the plans and desires of the editor,was just one part of the program, being a necessary prerequisite to the montage process.The modern cinema actor,once swallowed up by the cinema machine, was to be treated like the workers of Packington. Montage ,then
One survivor that stuck out was Margaret Hastings, as she had a personality that was funny, and serious that couldn’t be disliked.

When Sergeant Laura Besley died, “Margaret knew that [the shoes] came from the body of her good friend and double date partner. (...) Wearing Laura’s shoes might be the difference between life and death” (Zuckoff 75). Margaret Hastings was mourning the life of her friend, however her survival instincts and her strength overpowered the sadness coming from the loss of Laura.

Through the help of Lewis and Cosi Henry is able to gain slightly more confidence and experience some happiness.
All my life, I have always been very understanding and sympathetic towards individuals with mental disabilities. My cousin has a mental disability called Fragile X, which is a chromosomal abnormality that causes the individual to be cognitively and mentally impaired. Because of my experiences with my cousin and my love for him as a person, the beginning of Rain Man really disturbed me in a way that put me in an emotional state with the film right off the bat. The film Rain Man shows true compassion and character shift accurately throughout it, making it a very entertaining and serious movie to pay attention to. Acting is impeccable to this type of movie.
As Holly Martins, Joseph Cotten shows a strong sense of morality, justice, and loyalty; he ends up struggling to make the right decision in a constantly changing situation. Even in this ambiguous situation, Martins acts readily on his moral sense, making him a predictable but volatile character. Trevor Howard as Major Callaway makes a good counterpoint for Cotten. He shows a strong morality himself, yet he's not above manipulating Martins into helping him. The film steadily constructs a curious picture of the missing Lime through the comments of those who knew
