Evaluative Essay on With Honors

In the movie With Honors there are many similarities, as well as differences between the characters on screen and students that I know personally. Especially, when it comes to their values. For example, when the one roommate was complaining about the homeless man being in the apartment too much. I believe that, if put into the same situation, most students that I know would have a problem with him being able to roam freely in and out of the house. I had a friend who was in a similar situation; his older brother brought a strange man to the apartment to stay for a few days. It wasn't the fact that he didn't like the man, it was that he didn't know him or what he was capable of. Now there are a few out there who wouldn't mind but it basically comes down to familiarity. People have a tendency to be untrusting, basically because of the times that we live in. Another situation, in the movie, that is similar to the reality that I line in is when the one female who lived in the apartment walked around half dressed and only one of the guys seemed to mind. We live in a time where a woman walking around half dressed is accepted as the norm. So naturally if a few men and women lived together they would get comfortable enough with each other that they wouldn't mind if one or the other walked around in their unmentionables. I stayed in an apartment with another guy and four women and it wasn't uncommon for one or more of the individuals under this roof to be walking around half dressed or in some extreme cases completely nude. The students in the movie also dealt with relationship and school problems. Such as the young woman having casual relationships and calling one of them sex. Also, the one guy being teased constantly about his love life. These are all problems that student face in real life today. So the movie really came close to being as realistic as possible.
