place. Her sisters thought that it would be a great idea and of course, Carla?s overprotective mother said, ?No way.? Elizabeth?s reason for her answer was that she thought Carla could not take care of herself. Elizabeth was thinking, what if she left the door unlocked or the oven on. In her mother?s eyes it just was not a good idea. Carla was saying that she was going to take out the garbage and do other things that were responsible. Things that she would do if she had her own apartment. That night at dinner, Carla?s mother decided that she could get her own place. So, they watched some video tapes on different apartments. Finally, Elizabeth saw an apartment that she loved and would be great for Carla. A couple of weeks later Carla moved into her very own apartment. This just

shows how Carla?s mother thinks that just because she is mentally challenged that she can not do things for herself. Carla proved her mother wrong. She showed her that she was able to take on responsibilities. Just because Carla is different does not mean that she should be looked at differently. This movie relates to the book Freakshows that was to be read for class. I think this because all of the ?freaks? were looked at differently because of the way that they looked or acted. I disagree with that a tremendous amount. I have a cousin that is mentally challenged and handicap. No one looks at her or treats her differently. It was time for Carla?s sister?s wedding and Daniel and Carla had broken up. The second daughter?s girlfriend was not invited to the wedding. During the

ceremony Daniel came back and asked Carla to marry him in front of everyone. Elizabeth was embarrassed, stood up and apologized for the disruption and said the ceremony would now continue, and it did. It amazed me that Elizabeth was not happy for Carla and that she found someone to love and that someon left unfinished. Carla kept on explaining to her mother that she was old enough to get married. She was saying that she loved Daniel. Elizabeth reused to believe Carla and told her that she does not know what love is. Carla was telling her mother how she hated the wedding that she had made for her older sister and that when her and Daniel get married she was going to make the wedding all by herself. With that comment coming out of Carla?s mouth, her mother went back inside and

Carla walked away in the distance. Carla and Daniel decided that they were going to get married and that they were going to do everything by themselves. So they did. Carla wrote out the invitations to everyone who her and Daniel wanted celebrating their special day. When Carla?a second oldest sister received her invitation, she called Carla very excited and thanked her for inviting her girlfriend. The day had finally come and Carla was going to be married to Daniel. Carla?s father was getting ready to go to the ceremony, and Elizabeth was just sitting on the couch. She was not going to the wedding, because she thought that what Carla was doing was wrong. Carla?s father arrived at the wedding with a huge smile on his face. He was going to see his little girl get married. His house

was going to be empty. After Carla and Daniel said their vows, Carla turned around and saw her mother walking into the wedding. This made Carla so excited to see that her mother cared and was willing to be apart of her life even though she did not agree with everything that she did. In The Other Sister, the settings were always so bright and cheerful. I believe that this was done for a special reason. I think that the film was mostly always so bright, because Carla was an outgoing girl. She was always looking for something to do or how to make herself be a better person. She would get upset when people would begin to laugh at her. She wanted to be able to do things for herself and not have other people do them for her. Carla wanted a future, and that future she wanted was going

to be with Daniel. The only time in the film that it was dark was when Carla and her mother went to the park and they were talking about relationships, boys, and Carla?s apartment. Elizabeth was telling Carla how she did not think that it would be a good idea if she had boys coming over to her apartment. Her mother had to face reality and know that Carla was a young woman now and she was going to have boyfriends and boys coming over to her apartment. Carla was a very bright woman and would never do anything to hurt herself in anyway. It was time that Elizabeth would let go of her daughter and allow her to grow up and see what the real world was like. By the end of The Other Sister, Carla had overcome the obstacles that she was facing. She never thought that her mother would
