From what I saw and understood from the movie was that we're all different in our own ways but it doesn't mean that different people can't be friends. We may have self-esteem issues and people don't realize that they have family and friends who actually care. Children may think their parents don't care but, in reality they do. They just choose to see and hear what they want. I think I can relate to most of the characters. But the ones that I relate to most are Andy and Claire. It's pretty common for almost everyone to want good grades and to show off to their parents, well that's what I saw out of Brian. Of course most people are shy at first and that's who Allison is. She gets to know them first before she starts to talk directly to the other characters. I am pretty positive I don't relate to a criminal though.
I think I relate to Andy because he's very athletic, he always tries to defend people, he tries to impress his dad and make his dad proud of him. Yes, I like to do sports. To me, sports help me let my anger out when I need to. I do try to defend people if they aren't doing the job and letting people just talk crap about them, I'll try to help out a little bit. One thing I don't like about Andy is he tries to change himself for his dad. I don't think you should change for anybody, no matter who it is. That's a big issue with self-esteem, believing what other people think of you and taking it to the heart. If you accept the fact that others talk and say stuff about you, everywhere you go, it won't affect you as much. I know I'll try best not to change for anybody, especially my family. I don't think I would change for my family because, they're the ones who made me and raised to be who I am today, therefore they should except me for who I am. To me that’s what Andy did wrong, he let his dad get to him and let him push him to be somebody he's not.
I also find myself relating to Claire because she is...
