Story that Disappoints then Appoints

INTERVIEW

  1. Motherless Brooklyn chronicles the life of  a man who encounters multiple disappointments but learns from them as he tries to find himself in the process.
  2. There is one main challenge that I find might be a hindrance in the film adaptation of this novel, which I deem to be ironic. It is the misfortune itself that the main figure encounters throughout his story. The reason I say this to be an obstacle for the success of the movie is because this is a negative aspect of it, which most people might not appreciate.
  3. Lionel’s character is indeed compelling. I think this because despite the stumbling-block situations he gets thrown into by life, he manages to get through them in the end-and with life lessons in his “life sac” as well.
  4. The main thing that I wish for people to take away from Lionel and his story is that frustrating events in life are inevitable. The secret is to live in them when they come and be sensitive to what it might be teaching you-ask yourself what might be life’s reason for throwing you into this.

 


TASK ONE: LOG LINE

  1. Done.
  2. Done.
  3.  The protagonist: An orphan lost in life’s disenchantment. The goal of the protagonist: An orphan lost in life’s disenchantment seeking to find himself. The antagonist: An orphan lost in life’s disenchantment seeking to find himself but is ironically hindered by his inner limitations.
  4. When Lionel’s professional mentor and father figure’s life is taken away, the lost orphan attempts to take vengeance or else he might feel useless and at he same time guilty for this loss.
  5. Four Questions: Why did Lionel take away Gerard’s life? (Because Gerard is responsible for Minna’s death). Why was Lionel involved with Kimmery? (He can use her as a ladder to demystifying Minna’s murder). Why was Lionel dissatisfied when he finds out that it is Danny who got to the “new Minna?” (Because he wants to be Mina himself). Why does Lionel want to pursue Minna’s murderer? (Because he feels guilty for not being able to save Minna, thus he wants to take vengeance for him).
  6. When Lionel’s father figure passes away, he feels compelled to pursue whoever is responsible for his death. In order for him to do this, he has to find ways to speak with different people since he might have clues about how he might go over his quest.
  7. Motherless Brooklyn chronicles the life of  a man who encounters multiple disappointments but learns from them as he tries to find himself in the process.

 


TASK TWO: FORGET ABOUT LOG LINE

  • A man who encounters multiple disappointments learns from them as he tries to find himself in the process.
