Find Yourself in a Small Town - Page 2
In some things Caroline Wexler is more senior than her classmates; in some others she is more naive than them. However, the direct dialogue with the viewer makes the main character very live and real. No doubt Carolina is in search of itself. And such thing is always accompanied by a set of trials and mistakes. But this is the only way in searching and finding for a teenager.
Despite the importance of “girl-puzzle”, for the director it would be wrong to dwell only on this character, therefore, in addition, there are two other male subjects – school teacher and a tiny guy. Caroline is helping us to discover the true essence of one of them and the other in turn, shows us the main character from the other angle of view, which later proves to be more important.
The main character already in the beginning of the movie make known to the audience that she decides to try a mask with a view to becoming a different person. The results of this decision we are seeing during the film: the seduction of a teacher and a boorish behavior with a young boy, who plays a much greater role in the mind of Caroline, than she would like to think. The boy Thurston Goldberg is also on the difficult way of searching answers to the life questions, while the teacher Barry Anderson still did not realize who he is - a genius or mediocrity.
After viewing the Daydream Nation remains pretty romantic feeling, perhaps because the end of this movie shows us a simple but at the same time a very important thing – the love is always and everywhere, but you need a time to understand that it is very close.
