Two Papers

Can you relate to either one of their experiences from an identity perspective? If so, how?

(NOTE: I am not saying that you need to be Amish and/or have a gender identity crisis to relate to these movies; I am rather asking you to compare your identity experiences either the characters in these movies)

It should be about 300 – 350 words
