However, this typical teenage encounter gives absolutely nothing to reflect upon for the audience. On the other hand, this scene in the 2010 remake has more of an appealing, young love feel. In the park right outside his new apartment, Dre Parker, played by Jaden Smith, unexpectedly catches a glimpse of love at first sight. Mei Ying, played by Wenwen Han, innocently sits alone on an adjacent park bench. This makes her seem easier to approach, giving the audience a sense that it was fate for the two to meet.
represent? In Bel Kaufman’s Sunday in the Park, the quiet park surrounded by busy New York City represents the intent on why the characters chose to go to the park. Morton, being a university professor, an occupation that would keep him constantly surrounded by people, would prefer to simply escape the busyness of New York City by spending a day at the park with his family. The antagonist of the story, Joe’s father, displays a controlling and selfish character which is seen when he says, “Throw all you want. This here is a public sandbox.” (37).
This can also be a way of her dealing with her isolated discomfort. Every Sunday Miss Brill goes out to the park. She even has her own designated seat. On one random Sunday she went out to the park and saw two elderly women conversing on her seat. She becomes disappointed because their conversation wasn’t as thrilling as the conversations she was able to eavesdrop upon the previous
In early summer 1948 David Hayden was an innocent 12 year old child. David had a stable, happy life with a tight and loving family. He simply enjoyed being a young boy; he loved the wildness of nature where he was at his happiest. “Out of town I could simply be, I could feel my self” (p.24). David loved to be on his grandfather’s ranch where he could be with his horse, Nutty.
He “loved” Marie, though his love for her was, “as a twelve-year olds love often is, chaste.” He was an outgoing person, he “did what boys usually did and exulted in the doing.” He rode horseback, he swam, and he hunted. He believed school or any of the usual human communities seemed to “weaken or scatter” him. He was confused about Frank’s betrayal because he idolised him- “Charming, affable Uncle Frank was gone for good.”pg.49 Gail Hayden- Gail was from North Dakota. She was strong-willed, “She’s staying here.” Pg.43 She met Wesley while he was in Law school and were married soon after they met. David was their only child.
He considers him the nicest, smartest and sweetest person in the family. Allie represents the innocence of childhood which Holden values. Because he died at such a young age, he will forever be frozen as a sweet, perfect innocent who never became phony, which Holden later comes to understand is simply a by product of growing up. Since his brother’s death, Holden has had difficulty communicating with not only other family members, but also others. It begins with the traumatic episode itself, when Holden learns that Allie has died.
Miss Brill fantasizes so much about being important and that ”somebody would [notice] if she [wasn’t] there” (135), that she didn’t realize what the community actually thinks of her. Fantasizing one’s entire life about staying youthful, having friends, and being important to the community can alienate a person from his or her society. Miss Brill has been coming to the park “every Sunday” (135) and has been judging everyone she sees at the park. Miss Brill even takes note of the people that come regularly to the park, like the band. Miss Brill is “sure that [the coat the conductor was wearing] was new” (133).
My parents got divorced at a young age and it was just him and I. That was okay with me, he was a very good dad. Everyone helped us out as much as they could. My second home was at my aunt’s house, who I called grandma, she practically raised my dad. We lived a very happy life and I had always felt safe and at home in Nampa.
Once they get back together, nothing is going to stop these kids-at-heart from having the time of their adult lives in this hilarious and heartwarming film. Now grown up, the five-some lead very different lives. As a kid, Eric was the fit guy who played enforcer. As an adult, Eric (Kevin James) has gotten soft in the middle and is now the father of a 48 month old who still breastfeeds from mom, Sally (Maria Bello). Kurt (Chris Rock) is a stay-at-home dad whose pregnant wife (Maya Rudolph) takes him for granted, makes fun of his cooking, and has planted her mom in the household just to annoy him.
He was very protective of me, but was like that only because he loved me. He was always so respectful to others and his warm vivacious personality is what everyone loved about him. I remember when we were younger, we didn’t go to school and so Tom and I would stay home with Mama. Tom would always be bored around the house so Mama would tell him to take me outside and for us to go for a walk. We would go for long walks in the field, play, and tell jokes.
