3. "The Painted Door": Film Study
We finished viewing "The Painted Door" and discussed the differences between the film and the text. In both the film and the text, the setting is very important. The students realized that the storm is a symbol for Anne's struggle. In addition, the storm/blizzard creates the situation in which Anne and Steven are temped and able to commit adultery. Finally, vast, empty prairie with the small isolated cabin is symbolic of Anne's loneliness and emotional isolation.
