Also, she acted bit non-sensible way when many people were talking to her at the same time. She was upset, stress out easily and had a hard time to understand those people. Then she ran away from them. Instead, in “Invictus” story, Morgan Freeman (Mandela) acted more as a gentle man. He was simple and straight forward not as strange as Temple character. Most of the time when he communicated or met with people around him or in the public, he acted calmly and softly as a good talker, listener and thinker.

Claire Danes was more attractive to performed as Temple to show the audiences how autistic person behaved and…

    Romeo and Juliet Essay When comparing both the 1968 Franco Zeffirelli movie version of Romeo and Juliet with the 1996 Baz Luhrmann movie of Romeo + Juliet, I feel that the newer movie by Baz Luhrmann is more effective.

    Claire Danes was a better actor for Juliet by reading her lines with more emotion than Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo`s lines. Luhrmann wanted them act in the movie as they fall in love in first sight by them checking out each other through the aquarium glass. To prove that they did fall in love Romeo stated, "Did my heart love 'til now? Forswear its sight. For I never saw true beauty 'til this night" (Martinelli & Luhrmann, 1996). Their scenes together would be silence, sweetness, kindness,…
