Suspense-The movie "The Ultimate Gift" is full of suspense. You could sense the suspense as Jason was working to get his gifts. You did not know what he was going to receive or if he would like it. The most suspense was shown throughout the whole movie as it built up to his ultimate gift.

Motives-There is a lot of reason why Jason did what he did. In the beginning of the movie Jason was doing these different task just so he could get the ultimate gift, but near the end of the movie Jason’s prospective on everything changed and he started doing things for other people instead of doing everything for him self

Pathos- Pathos are shown several times in the movie. An example of this is when Jason found out that Emily was suffering from Cancer. This made him realize that he was not the only person who was going through a difficult time and that there were other people in the world that were struggling too. While watching the movie it was hard to not feel sympathy for the characters because you began to understand their own feelings.

Symbols- In the movie, the butterfly symbolizes Emily. She talked about butterflies quite often, and she thought they were very beautiful. In the end of the movie Jason and Alexia kiss, the butterfly floating around them is there to symbolize that Emily will always be with them.

He almost quit many times but the idea of getting the ultimate gift, along with the encouragement and challenges put forth by Red Stevens' executives it kept Jason in the game. Life Lesson
