Before the accident, Henry hardly even knew his daughter and almost never spoke to her. At the start of the film the father-daughter relationship was very weak, he would never speak to her when he came home from work because he didn’t have time, but when he did he lectured to her - like when she spilled grape juice on his “prize piano” and yelled at her....   [tags: Film Movies] 593 words

This sort language is accepted modern usage, but as Kelley reminds us, "I refuse to accept any usage that is defined as modern." He believes this sort of language is what leads to other appalling statements like, "Hopefully it won't rain again today," which should then be answered with such a comment as, "Yes, hopelessly the sun will shine on little children all over the world, you benighted, salivating nit."
