Kimberly Caldwell English 131 Bush December 7, 2007 The Elements of K-PAX K-PAX, staring Kevin Spacey alongside Jeff Bridges is a movie about the impact a person can have on other people. Discussed in this paper will be the main character, Prot, the movie’s setting, and how authentic the movie is.

He has an air of mystery about him and it just makes us, the audience, want to know more. We want to discover who Prot really is, we watch him better the others in the institution, and we want to discover why he has had to hide himself in the shell of another person. Over the course of the movie we begin to become more and more pulled into who Prot is.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
