Dreams are a part of everybody’s life, this term dream is widely used to express mental images of something we may want, or something we whish we where. Dreams usually are seen as false, or just a child’s thing however this is seen mainly as the dreams conflict with reality. Many films of the post-modernism era can be seen that you would have the stereotypical way of someone wishing for something and it comes true. Even so Dreams are worthwhile and this will be shown below:
In the book looking for Alibrandi we see a typical year 12, student whom has never seen her father in her life and has always had the life long dream of meeting him. As we read further on we see that the father rejects the daughter at first but, with Jessie’s (Main Character) persistence her father finally accepts her and that her family is finally accepted. This is a perfect example of how a dream from childhood had stuck with a child and through tenacity she finally achieved her goal.
The Biography on Mel Maninga is another example of how a dream of a little boy who wished that he could follow in his father’s footsteps came true with him following his dream. In the end Mel did achieve what he sought to achieve and that was to become a first grade footballer and you may say this was a generalization of that everyone’s may come true and that may be the case if the wish is not one of supernatural powers etc, point being Mel’s dream did not come easy, again this may be merely coincidental however all dreams don’t come easy within reason of course.
In the Film “What A Girl Wants” we encounter that this tale is of a child who again contrary to Looking for Alibrandi, is similar in saying that it is about a young female who leaves her house and goes out and seeks her father who in this case is a person of importance. Here we envision the stereotypical motion picture of someone who dreams of something in this case, it would be of meeting her father, and that in the end she attains the satisfactions of bringing her nuclear family together and also gaining herself a male companion. In this motion picture we see that

- Looking at landscape art, especially when painted by one of the masters, many have undoubtedly pondered: what would it be like to live there. Shapes and attention to detail are, of course, important in a painting. However, it is color that draws the eye and inspires the heart. Oscar Wilde, an Irish poet and dramatist, spoke well of this when he noted that, “Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. (qtd in “color”)”. Vincent Ward had a similar understanding of this impact when, in 1998, he directed the movie What Dreams May Come.... [tags: Film Analysis ]

- What Dreams May Come The movie What Dreams May Come gives a rather positive view on the afterlife. I think most of the ideas and views shown in the film are related to many of society's main beliefs pertaining to death and the afterlife, but the views are left broad enough so they can relate to any specific religion. Personally, I have no concrete belief concerning the afterlife, or whether or not if there even is life after death, but I can see why many people would agree with many of the films perspectives....

Another example of where dreams go wrong would be the song, “My happy ending” by Anvil Lavinge. Here we have a 19yr old teenage vocalist, and she is someone who believes in singing about personal experiences. In her song we see that she had dreams. These did not necessarily happen however they were something to strive for. In this case we see that her dream did not actually happen however we do see that she accepted the fact that it did give her something to look forward too. The problem here is that again with the bad turn out of a dream of someone they usually drop into depression which is inevitable in our society where everyone seeks what they want.
Dreams we see in all these text above are all required to give us humans a sense of that there is hope. Weather someone may be in a depressed state etc, a dream would usually give them hope that something better may come. Of course all the examples above usually involve making a change yourself, this is the link to that Dreams are not necessarily fictional as if most of the text above have dreams came true with the persistence of someone. This shows that not all dreams are inevitable. Obviously with dreams one may not always get what they want but it is clear that with persistence it can be done, with regarding the song by anvil lavinge we see that she had a dream and in the end her little world came falling on her, this would be seen as unfortunate, and that not everything we wish for will happen however as humans we can always rely on the fact that dreams shall always offer an alternative to reality and that in some cases they may not always come true they are worth the excitement and let downs as that only god an really make what we would like come true.
