Rebel Without A Cause
Symbols: The Mansion
Theme: Belonging and Family
Rank the characters in order of most disturbed to least disturbed and explain...
Jim: I think Jim is the next in line because he's not exactly psychologically messed up, but he is very confused and conflicted by manliness. He looks to his dad for help, but he is none which just confuses him even more, causing him to rebel.
Judy: I think Judy is the least disturbed of all the characters because her only issue seems to be the fact that she no longer gets as much attention from her father. Rather than this being a psychological issue, it is more an issue of Judy being needy.
