  • Sliding Doors Movie Analysis

    Sliding Doors (1998) explores the two distinct outcomes of the life of a woman who misses her train. Helen (Gwyneth Paltrow), the woman in question, is fired from her PR job for trivial reasons and goes to take the train back home.

In the other, she catches her train, meets James (John Hannah) then arrives home only to find her boyfriend in bed with another woman. As the movie progresses, the storylines diverge even more as the Helen that had missed her train never meets and talk to James, and keeps working hard as a waitress to support her boyfriend who is allegedly writing a book.

In contrast, the Helen that caches her train gets a new haircut, starts her own company and finds a new boyfriend in James. By the end of the movie, both versions of Helen get pregnant but lose their child in an accident. The first version of Helen that had caught the train dies, while the other survives, breaks up with Gerry and meets James on her way out at…

  • Consequences Of Change In Peter Howitt's Film Sliding Doors

    Newton’s third law of physics state that “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” This can be applied to the universal concept of change and indicates that all choices have rippling effects in life, which shape the consequences of change we experience, be it positive or negative.

  • Personal Narrative: Dark Images

    forced my body to sit up in bed, my head continued to hang down, pounding, so weighty. Moving as if in slow motion towards the door, my legs were weak and heavy. After, grasping the door handle only to quickly pull away, the handle was immensely hot. The atmosphere was unexpectedly eerie. My equilibrium appeared off, the unusual blanket of darkness impaired my sight. The smell of burnt wood, the heat in the door and the horrible taste of charcoal in my mouth was horrid. There were four children…

One fateful Sunday morning, in 2004, a stubborn 6 year old me, slowly tortured by the droning of the majestically draped priest, asked to use the bathroom. My mother, ensnared by the Holy Spirit, absent-mindedly mumbled…
