Thank you so much, you have no idea how much this means to me.
This scene made me feel empathy because I can imagine how nervous he already was prior to the interview, & he also had to deal with having to spend the night in jail due to his unpaid parking tickets, which was stress that was not needed, and to show up to a really important job interview dressed in paint covered clothes, and still managing to get the intern, regardless of it being unpaid, it still provides a chance of him being able to move up & eventually get paid. This scene also made me feel empathy because I can imagine how happy & hopeful he was after everything he's been going through.
This specific scene was super sad, but it also allowed me to not only have sympathy, but empathy as well. I felt empathetic for him during this scene because although I've never been in his exact situation, I can only imagine how it feels to not have anywhere to sleep or don't know where you are going to sleep that night, especially when you have a young child as well. I can imagine how upset he must've been due to the fact that he feels like he feels like he cannot provide properly for his son.
This scene allowed me to feel empathy because after all he's been through I can only imagine how excited and happy he must've been after all he's been through and how much he must have wanted to give up on everything, but he didn't & how thankful he must have been once he realized all he went through was worth it, and that now, he is able to provide for his son without having to worry about where his next meal is going to come from and where he is going to sleep for that night or whether or not he has to go to a shelter. This scene made me extremely happy because after seeing him being so unhappy for throughout the movie & finally seeing him achieve his goal of almost being happy, just makes me happy.
