Discussion Question: When looking at Boomerang, I feel the movie is presented in chronological order. The reason I feel this way is because the movie demonstrates an arranged order of how the plot is given to the audience. I feel the movie explains the main characters ways in the beginning and how he changes for the better as we get to the end.
When looking at the aesthetic choice and its relation to the audience I feel it showed the audience what love really is and truly showed that anyone can change when the right person comes along. When looking at the characters in the movie, I feel that there is a balance to the story telling method.
The reason I feel this way is because we were not sucked into Marcus too much in the movie because everyone played unique roles in displaying the final result of the movie. I believe if the film had a different presentation style, I think the audience general effect would be the same.
The reason I feel this way is because whichever way the plot is presented, the end meaning to the movie is everyone will find there match out here, or that person who will be the one in there life. It may come later than others but it will come.
