Ransom Stoddard is the “play-it-by-the-rules”, compassionate lawyer from the east who survives through his ability to apply the law. The film’s unique dynamic of a split-hero role is easily seen through the characteristics of Tom Doniphon and Ransom Stoddard. Let us first begin by defining a “hero”. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary a hero is, “typically a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities; one who shows great courage; bravery”. Throughout the film it is easy to see that both Doniphon and Stoddard fit the description in their own unique ways, while also sharing some of these traits.
He says, “It’s one of the happiest nights of my life”. This shows that he is quite selfish because he only thinks that it is one of the happiest nights of his life, not of Sheila and Gerald’s.

Throughout the novel, Changez reminisces on certain aspects of America, such as ‘American popcorn shrimp’ and significant landmarks such as the ‘expressive beauty of the Empire State Building.’ Despite the traumatic and confronting experiences Changez faces in his ‘4 and a half’ year stay in New York, he still longs for certain parts of the American culture.

For example, the way Laurie (who has little authority, but power over his players, who after all are the backbone of the club) is portrayed as genuine and moral, saying, ‘They’re men, not pigs’, when Gerry callously talks of selling and buying players. This type of diction is also used throughout the screenplay, and utilises Australian idioms and colloquial language, even when characters are addressing figures of higher authority than themselves. This shows that official authority is not sincerely respected. Laurie ultimately, ends up achieving
The junk food industries keep these foods very visible and easily accessible to everyone. People are addicted to junk food because it is cheaper, taste better and advertised more heavily than healthier food.
