Class and Virtue
I think it's funny how you always see the same type of characters in movies and tv shows played by the same types of people and have the same attitudes and accents. There is a character stereotype used in almost every movie made. I sometimes don't notice that this is done until the second or third time I watch a movie. I would hate to think that all media is this way, because that would just be sad, but it is a common sight. I think the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness, was a movie that showed the lower class man in a new light. Maybe that's because it is based on a TRUE story, but I still feel that it had good quality. A man who has no money, no place to call his own, works hard, raises his son, and beats out his higher class competitors for a job as a stock broker. Nobody knew that he was homeless and struggling. It's crazy, all the talk and beliefs about class and who should be in that class and all the factors that go into being put into a certain class. With all the criteria to be able to fall in the middle or upper class, i'm surprised some people find it so easy to judge.
