Anderson2 The movie Bucket List stars Jack Nicholson as Edward Cole. (Zackham, 2007) Edward Cole character’s type in this movie is a successful businessman, who builds hospitals, and is all about himself and no one else. Early in the movie, Edward comes to find out he has cancer. Throughout the movie Edward experiences the Kubler-Ross Stages of Loss (Braun, 2009). He doesn’t really handle it very well. He goes through denial, some anger, and depression. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross mentions that you can go the stages in any order and repeat them many times. But, before you pass you must accept it, as Kubler-Ross explains. (Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Foundation, 2009) As mentioned before, Edward is going thru the stages, slowly. When Edward finds out he has cancer, he is in denial from day one and continues to be throughout the movie.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
