Movie Character Analysis "Real Women Have Curves"
The film Real Women Have Curves stresses how important higher education is to a Mexican-American teenager and the wrath she endures from her mother because of her weight and aspiration
Soon, Mexican American laborers grew tired of this mistreatment, and multiple Mexican American labor groups were created in order to advocate for safer working conditions, fair wages, etc.
Furthermore, the force of antagonism needs to have a point. I’m coupling these two elements because they play off one another here. For us to have real empathy with Ana, we’ve got to believe that Carmen has a point – that she is truly needed to generate income for the family. Instead, when Estella’s financial troubles are known, Ana is told to work for free (rather than find another job that would generate income for the family).
