Movies From Another Point of View: Twitter Thread

Posted on June 4, 2018 at 8:55 pm

I love this Twitter thread from @profmusgrave

Retell a familiar story from the point of view of the supporting character.

Like: it’s the tragedy of a good husband and father who is killed by his pilot friend’s recklessness in fighter school.

It’s fun to do as an exercise in literary analysis, point of view, and empathy.

My entry:

A loyal domestic servant cares for the orphaned son of a wealthy family even after he grows up and dabbles in cosplay and vigilantism.
