Movie Critique of Mean Girls
Developmental Psychology Film Critique bod Two I cogitate the important character in the motion picture to be Cady Heron who is played by Lindsay Lohan and is a 16 year old girl. She was homeschooled her entire heart until now. I would place Cady in the Adolescence detail of Eriksons theory of groomment. It is described that the basic conflict in this stage is identity vs. role confusion. In this stage teens need to develop a personal sense datum of self and personal identity. If unitary is fitted to succeed it will lead them with the ability to stay uncoiled to their self.Failure to do so leads the individual to role confusion and a faint sense of self. In the beginning of the film it luffs Cady as a nice girlish shy and naive girl who is tries her best to fit in. She is nice to e realone roughly her and has a hard time finding someone who will arrogate her. She ends up meeting two other wad who be exchangeable minded as herself. She is dared by one of her new fri ends to change in pronounce to shorten back at a girl who she wants to get revenge on from the 8th grade.Cady does such a skillful descent at changing who she is that she begins to lose her sense of self and her personal identity. She realizes one sidereal day that she ditched her real friends for her new fake ones and it reminds her that she has developed a weak sense of self. At the end of the movie she is able to regain her true self and become friends with her original friends again. Yes the character named Cady did experience changes in the kindly role they occupied over the course of the film. When she outgrowth came to the school she wasnt unfeignedly accepted and nobody paid any attention or respect to her.Once she sold out and marrowed the fake stem of girls called the plastics she was exactly then able to gain popularity and respect from her classmates. When she became part of the plastics she lost her first and only true friends as well. Like I said in the beg inning she did leave the plastics and became friends with her first friends again. I would place Cady in level 2 conventional mortality. Views of other people matter to the individual at this level. the great unwashed at this level alike try to avoid blame and explore approval.I would also put Cady at stage 3 of this level. In this stage people impart good intentions. They want to behave in a way that is considered good behavior. Cady definitely cares nigh how other people view her and it really matters to her. She changes a lot in this film vertical so people accept her. She joins a group of people that gets attention. pile really dont like the group of girls she joins but they bide to look up and respect them. She lies to her old friends to avoid blame some(prenominal) times throughout the film.She also tries to get approval from her original friends for her to join the plastics but they do not approve. She leaves the group because she doesnt have good intentions of being in it. The only reason why she conjugate the group was to help her friend get the inside on her in order to get revenge. I would say that the easiest indication of identity issues within the main character comes from her level of self esteem. She feels bad at first that she croupet find friends. She comes home from school on the first day and doesnt even speak to her parents because she got picked on so bad.She also joined the plastics and became so popular but she knew it wasnt her and she still had low self-esteem. It wasnt until she left the plastics became friends again with her original ones was she able to gain her self-esteem back. She learned to accept everyone for who they were. I would say that in the end of the movie it does show that Cady experiences a sense of life satisfaction. She is able to find out who she rattling is and is able to help others do the same as well. She destroys the prom pouffe tiara that she receives at the beginning of the schools prom dance.S he breaks it into pieces and gives it to all of the students obese them that they are all special. I think that this part of the movie really shows best the sense of life satisfaction of Cady and also her classmates. I believe that this film is more of a chick flick but it does have an impression that can be perceived by anyone who watches it. It shows real life events that go on everyday throughout the high schools across the world. Students are at a time in life where they need to adjudicate who they are and what they want to become.I believe that it does portray the adolescence stage of Eriksons very well in a positive way. I think it shines clear-cut on what it is really like for both the group of classmates who gets picked on and also the people who are doing the picking. It shows that people who used to not get along can learn how they can accept each other and move much happier lives. I think that the overall message the film sends about adolescence is that it isnt an eas y road to travel down and that it may gravel several attempts at trying new things to help someone sincerely find out who they really are.
