You don't dare touch her bare arm! Get your mind off her, Charlie!
This kind of picture is a lie. Things are forced to fit because the writer or the director or somebody wanted something in that didn't belong. And it doesn't feel right.
Should you put your arm around her or not? Was she waiting for you to do it? Would she get angry? You are still behaving like an adolescent!
Charlie Gordon was an intellectually disabled man who dreamed of becoming smarter, for as long as he could remember. Now, his fantasy is fulfilled after undergoing a surgical procedure that raised his I.Q. of 68 by more than double. As he adapts to the effects of the operation, he is shadowed by his past and future selves.
You have been so absorbed in yourself. She is terrified of you, Charlie.

You're different. You've changed. It's your attitude toward people -you're not the same kind of human being-
May 1 - Charlie takes Alice Kinnian, his longtime teacher at the college he used to study at, on a date to the cinema.
May 17 - Charlie brings Alice to an orchestra concert at The Mall in Central Park.
June 6 - After experiencing a disturbing and traumatic flashback, Charlie needs somebody to talk to, somebody that would make him feel better: Alice. He visits her in the classroom she teaches at the Center for Retarded Adults.
Charlie understands that the doctors who conducted the experiment think of him as mere raw scientific material. He has been treated in the same way that Algernon, a mouse subjected to the same operation as Charlie, was too.
Nobody really cares about Charlie Gordon, whether he's a moron or a genius. Whether he has an I.Q. of 185 or 70.
It seems as if Charlie finds himself trapped in a maze, one that he has been placed in since birth.
