This scene is when The Eagle called everyone to the gym, to tell them that Alaska died.
Looking For Alaska Rational
We chose this scene from Looking For Alaska, because we think the theme of the book is really well portrayed. It shows how MIles is rebelling against the authority figure, his love for Alaska, and coming of age. It also shows us about being present. And it shows how Alaska’s, and Mile’s relationship is evolving throughout the book.
Miles rebels by drinking with Alaska. He was concerned, and confused when Alaska handed him the bottle of wine. Thats because he knew that the old him( the one that lived with his parent) would have never drunk the wine, but since Alaska was offering he so he took it. He was rebelling against his old self, the loner that he left at home a couple months back.
This scene also displays Miles unrelinquished for Alaska. Miles was willing to get in trouble, because he was with Alaska. Later in the script you can see that Miles and Alaska have a flirtatious relationship. Mile continuously is trying to make Alaska happy. He think he has a deep connection with Alaska, and that staying at the school over the holidays was his opportunity.
It also shows coming of age, and being present. Miles was is growing up, experiencing the ups and downs of life. Our screenplay shows the pros of coming of age, but later on in the book the phrase changes to a different level of maturing, and life experiences. Being present is also shown in our screenplay. Miles is trying to taking advantage of the time he is with Alaska. He is not worrying about the consequences, and is just having a good time with Alaska.
Overall I think our screenplay shows the themes of rebellion, love, and coming of age accurately, and efficiently.. All four major themes of the book, And the relationship of the characters.
