2.What is the theme or moral of the film “Simon Birch”
There are themes and morals to every film, which teaches the viewer a lesson. In the movie “Simon Birch”, the theme is that faith and determination can you bring a long way. Throughout the film, Simon never lost faith, that he was made the way he was for a reason and kept saying he was going to be a hero and God’s instrument. Furthermore, even when Joe kept doubting him and telling him he wasn’t made for a reason and that it’s all just a load of rubbish, and even after Mrs. Wentworth died, he continued to believe that he was made for a purpose; to be a hero, even though he was small. Also, when Simon said “God has a plan for all of us”, Joe interjected and said, “There is no God”. Simon then replies with “Don’t Say That”, which shows that he is insistent that God has a plan for him, and he doesn’t lose belief in himself that he can’t be a hero. In addition, this was the theme because in Simon Birch, even though the whole city was hating on him after what he had done at the performance, he continued to have faith and determination to become a hero. This was effective because it shows that Simon’s faith made him believe that he was going to do a great thing, and he had the determination to do it. Even when all the kids were laughing at him on the bus, they were saved by Simon, which ended up killing him. In real life, if you have determination and faith, you can do most of the things you dream of doing. For example, in the film “The Scarlet Ibis”, Doodle and his brother’s determination to get Doodle to walk happens because they felt like it was hopeless in the beginning but when they had faith and determination in their mind, their self-esteem rose and Doodle was able to walk. This is relevant to real life because if Michael Jackson had given up when he got rejected by his High School’s Basketball team, he would have never gone to the NBA. Moreover, its relevant to real life because if Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t try to get better and have faith, he would have continued to have difficulty playing with other Soccer players, who were just as good as him. Thusly proving that you need determination and faith for everything in life because having determination can get you anywhere in life. Overall, the moral of movies, teach the viewers a lesson about life such as Simon Birch, which is similar to “The Scarlet Ibis” The film “The Scarlet Ibis” was similar, as the producers of the film showed the theme determination and faith.

The movie “Simon Birch” was similar to the movie “The Scarlet Ibis” because, in the film, Simon has faith and determination that he was going to do something great, which was saving the kids in the bus and that he was the way he was for a reason.

Also, Simon is similar to Doodle because both of them depend on someone for faith and determination. Simon depended on God for faith and determination and Doodles determination came from his brother. Furthermore, the themes are similar as both of them never gave up once no matter what other people thought about them.
