“Reunion” by John Cheever is a short story about Charlie who hasn’t seen his father since his parents’ divorce. So on his way back to his mother’s house he schedules a lunch with his father. Yet Charlie’s view on his father changes when his father continually has problems controlling his bad attitude.

If I get drafted to go to war it would be a hard decision to make if I would go or not because you may never get to come back alive.

The most important theme shown in this film is to never give up. Never giving up is important to everyone because if we do give up on something then it affects that person for maybe their entire life or for a while.

She would not disappoint her father. Instead she went behind his back, because she would not let her father discover what a big disappointment she really was. She would rather put herself in danger and receive advice and help from a stranger, whom she had sworn not to talk to, than disappoint her father.

He is wise enough to know that the prejudices of people will never allow justice to be done, at the same time, he is determined that the truth be told so that people who convict Tom Robinson will be aware that they are convicting an innocent man.
