I disliked "Leaving Normal" a lot! I thought it was a really bad film. It seemed like it was just a heart warming film from the Woman's Entertainment channel. I do not really see how it applies to anything. I felt like we just watched it because P. Zita liked it. I do see some of things that we discussed but this film was a really bad example of them. Everthing was too obvious.
My favorite film was "Little Miss Sunshine". Even though I had a likeness for the film before we watched it in class, I looked at it in a different way. I thought it was fun to draw paralells between this film and the other films that we watched. I really liked it because it wasn't just one or two people on the road, there were many people that were affected by the road trip. They were a family but they were all so different and came from different places. Each family member was affected in there own way but it brought them together as a cohesive unit. It was also interesting to see different genders, sexes, and ages being affected in the same film. It was a modern day road film
