2. Why does Truman form such a bond with Perry Smith? Do you think Truman falls in love with him? Why/why not? What are their similarities? What are their differences?
I believe that the reason why Truman forms such a bond with Perry Smith is because Perry Smith is a well spoken and intelligent man. In the movie Perry is shown to be a man that couldn't be blamed for what he did and that he is a delicate man. It seems to me that Truman does fall in love with Perry Smith even when he knows what Perry did. The reason I believe this is because of the way that Truman acts in the movie. like he is to heart broken to do anything when he hears that the men were sentenced to be executed. The similarities that they share are the way that they both are very intelligent and that in the movie they both grow up in some what abusive homes. The differences between them are that Truman got in to a better life when he was an adult and Perry didn't, instead he had a harder life style and killed a family.
