Transcript of Chinese Cinderella Triangle Theme Project

Chinese Cinderella
Chinese Cinderella
has many supporting themes that help create a clear image of the storyline. One of the themes in the story is that the abandonment in Adeline's life has shaped her into a strong, independent, and smart teenager.
Father said to Adeline, "'I'm afraid I've forgotten your chinese name. Is it Jung-quing?' A pang went through me. I meant to little to him, I was such a nobody, that he didn't even remember my name!" (Yen Mah 124) Father doesn't pay attention to Adeline. He just dumps her at a boarding school and they parent her so he doesn't have to. They feed her, give her an education, and a place to sleep. He abandons her there.

When Adeline first moves to Tianjin, she is forced to walk to and from school by herself. Even on the first day! When she gets lost and finds herself in a chinese food restaurant, her dad comes to pick her up. "'Where are you?' Father asked in an even voice, quite calmly, and, suddenly, with a pang, I realized nobody had missed me. They didn't even know I wasn't home." (Yen Mah 30) Adeline knew that no one realized she wasn't home. She felt that no one cared, and she was all alone. The father's reaction to the situation wasn't to drive her to and from school everyday, but to give her a map and expect her to be able to read it.
The movie
The Last Song
by Julie Anne Robinson is a movie based off of the book written by Nicholas Sparks. The main character Ronnie faces many hardships in her life that shaped her into a better person.
Nicholas Sparks wrote, “Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.” Nicholas Sparks,
The Last Song
. Ronnie was apart from her dad for years after her parents got divorced. She felt abandoned by him when he moved out and chose to not talk to him at all. But when she is forced to live with him over the summer, she finds out that these will be the last few months she'll ever be able to spend with him. She learns that he has cancer and doesn't know how much time he has left. The quote means that she felt abandoned when her father moved away, and when she found out that their time together was limited, she loved him more. Their love of music helped bring them closer together.

The Last Song
The song "When Somebody Loved Me" written by Sarah Mclachlan is a song they used in the movie toy story to describe how Jessie felt when she herself was
When Jessie was left there, it was a hardship that she faced but it shaped her identity into a stronger person.
"And when she was lonely
I was there to comfort her
And I knew
That she loved me"
In this small clip of the movie it shows the elapse of time and when she was younger to when she was growing to be older. When she was younger she played with her toy so much that they were almost best friends. But when she starting getting older, she played with her toy Jessie less and less.

"When Somebody Loved Me"
Ronnie's mom Kim had some wise words to Ronnie on the porch of her dad's house. She said, "We're not perfect. Any of us. We make mistakes, we screw up, but then we forgive and we move forward." Kim, The Last Song. Kim admits that she might not have been the best parent, and that she may have screw up at some point. She told Ronnie that she should forgive her and move forward. This would allow Ronnie to change to the better and to have less stress to hold.
Jessie's doll owner gets to be a teenager and she completely forgets about Jessie. A line in the song states,
"Lonely and forgotten
Never thought she'd look my way
And she smiled at me
And held me
Just like she used to do
Like she loved me
When she loved me."
The toy Jessie sees that shes about to pick her pick her up and looks at her. this look that she gives Jessie is very misleading. Jessie and her owner go into the car but then her owner just leaves Jessie to donate. Jessie feels betrayed and abandoned. Years later Andy wants Jessie to come back with his owner and him but she wasn't ready to go through the hardshipthat she already faced. but this hardship changed her for the better because she went and she fit in perfectly.
