Okonkwo, the son of the effeminate and lazy Unoka, strives to make his way in a world that seems to value manliness. In so doing, he rejects everything for which he believes his father stood. Unoka was idle, poor, profligate, cowardly, gentle, and interested in music and conversation. Okonkwo consciously adopts opposite ideals and becomes productive, wealthy, thrifty, brave, violent, and adamantly opposed to music and anything else that he perceives to be ÃÂsoft,ÃÂ such as conversation and emotion. He is stoic to a fault. Okonkwo would probably watch movies that are significant to his behavior. He behaves like a man without feelings who depends on no one but himself. He is a self made man. He would definitely watch the movie ÃÂThings Fall ApartÃÂ because it has him in it! Another movie that Okonkwo would see is ÃÂCast AwayÃÂ because it is about a man who is stranded on an island who depends only on himself to survive.
Okonkwo also has this ÃÂIndependenceÃÂ.
Another movie which Okonkwo would most likely see is ÃÂThe Self Made ManÃÂ.
NwoyeNwoye, OkonkwoÃÂs oldest son, struggles in the shadow of his powerful, successful, and demanding father. His interests are different from OkonkwoÃÂs and resemble more closely those of Unoka, his grandfather. Though he makes a show of scorning feminine things in order to please his father, he misses his motherÃÂs stories. His reluctance to accept OkonkwoÃÂs masculine values turns into pure embitterment toward him and his ways. Although Okonkwo curses his lot for having borne so ÃÂeffeminateÃÂ a son and disowns Nwoye. Nwoye would probably watch movies that are significant to his behavior. He would absolutely watch the movie ÃÂThings Fall ApartÃÂ for the reason that it has him in it. Other shows/movies that Nwoye would see are ÃÂThe SimpsonsÃÂ and ÃÂBrave heartÃÂ, because these shows/movies have effeminate characters in various forms.
