The Scene Where Chris and his son are waiting to fill a spot in a homeless shelter.
This is the scene where Chris' wife leaves San Francisco so she could get a job in New York.
Go Ahead! But Christopher is staying with me...
I'm leaving to New York.
Just Chris' family struggling generally.
Z.. Z.... Z.......
The scene that is portrayed is the one where Chris and his son have to find a place to stay after they've been kicked out of their motel room, so they end up finding a spot in a homeless shelter. I can sort of relate to them because my mom told me a story how her and my dad would fight when me and my brother were babies, so we ended up in a shelter because my dad left us for a short while and it was like the one Chris tried to get in, but i was only for women and children. I sort of felt bad for them because just knowing that that is what they went through, it makes you feel empathy.
This scene begins with Chris' wife telling him that she is leaving San Francisco with her son to find find a better job out in New York. Chris tells her that he isn't going with her, so she leaves him with his dad. I can relate to this as well because my dad abandoned us once again to go be with someone else instead of getting a different job. He now lives in Patterson with her and two kids. I don't feel some type of way about this one too much because it didn't hurt when he left...he wasn't a good person back then.
Throughout the whole movie, Chris and his family are financially struggling to the point where they become homeless. This is the one where I can empathize the most. Ever since my dad left, he was on clean slate, but my mom got stuck with all the bills, car payments, rent, and she didn't end up getting child support for a good three years. There was this one time we had to stay on my aunt's floor because we couldn't pay rent at my grandma's house. I know how it feels to be in his position and I sincerely feel bad for him and his son.
