Shane Marcheson Marcheson 01 Ms. Rosemary Tomani EN111 0B March 8, 2007 In The Bedroom In the Bedroom is a film that takes a close look at personal relationships and revenge. When Matt and Ruth Fowler lose their only son it turns their world upside down. One would likely view Frank Fowler, or even his parents, as the victim in this story, but things are not that simple. A central theme in this work is that the price of weakness can be steep. Being passive and escaping from conflict will not solve all of your problems. Each character plays to this theme in their own way. One example of this is Frank Fowler. He seems to reject his father’s ideas of him going to college and getting a good job. He works setting lobster traps, and reminds his father that fishing was good enough for his grandfather. He also looks to escape with his relationship with Natalie. He views this at first as a summer fling, but as the film progresses you can see it interfering with his decision to leave for school. In the end his indecisiveness costs him his life.
