Christopher Johnson McCandless After his body’s discovery in the Alaskan wilderness, Jon Krakauer wrote a short article for Outsider magazine about Chris McCandless and how he ended up in Alaska.

A great deal of people have spoken out angrily against Chris and his foolish youth who threw away his advantages in life and died in the wild.

McCandless himself is a young and successful college graduate with a good job and money in the bank who one day decides to up and disappear in response

E.M Forester describes a flat character as “The really flat character can be expressed in one sentence…” Royal Tenenbaum’s in one sentence is “he is very deceitful.” He begins the story as being a flat character his entire life, but when forced onto the streets, his manipulative nature turns against him; creating the beginning of his transformation. He is shown as a man who has always put himself before all others, including his family. Royal seems unable to grasp the idea that his irresponsible and selfish lifestyle has driven a wedge between him and his family that cannot be undone by a simple apology. The main goal of Royal however, is not to make amends to his family, but to have a roof over his head. The story begins with Royal being kicked out of his hotel room and having nowhere else to go, hatches a plan to gain entry into his old apartment by saying he has cancer.

A fairy tale in realist drag, ?The Pursuit of Happyness? is the kind of entertainment that goes down smoothly until it gets stuck in your craw. Inspired by a true story, as they like to say in Hollywood, the film traces the fleeting ups and frightening downs of Chris Gardner, whose efforts to keep his family from sinking into poverty evolve into a life-and-death struggle of social Darwinian proportions. It?s the early 1980s, and while Ronald Reagan is delivering the bad economic news on television, Chris is about to prove you don?t need an army to fight the war on poverty, just big smiles and smarts, and really sturdy shoes. (It also helps that the star playing him is as innately sympathetic as Will Smith.)
