In this scene, Chris was trying to grasp Mr. Twistle's attention but was unable to as Mr. Twistle was distracted by a Rubix Cube. But it wasn't until Chris solved the Rubix Cube, did Mr. Twistle view Chris as a memorable person. I can only imagine how frustrating it can be trying to present your best self, especially when your lively hood depends on it, and the other person isn't even giving you the time of day. I was truly feeling Chris' frustrations at this moment as I have struggled to gain others attention on at times.
In this scene, Chris has lost all sources of income and is forced to leave his motel room. As he has nowhere left to turn, his last option is to sleep in a subway restroom with his young son, in this moment of despair he is left sobbing holding on to his sleeping child. A long time ago, my family and I had become homeless due to a house fire. Though I was too young to remember, my family have spoken about how painful and stressful this situation was.
In this scene, Chris has been offered and has accepted a permanent position at the Dean Witter Company after a grueling internship that lasted 6 months. I believe Chris felt great pride in himself, as he should, for he calls this part of his life part of his life happiness. I believe I felt empathy in this scene due to the fact that I understand the feeling of working so hard on something, even though at times you may lose hope and question why you even started in the first place, and then the complete joy you feel afterward because it paid off.
