Jordan Spitzer FWS: Free Will, Essay 1 Film Analysis Of Inevitability / Free Will In Leopold And Loeb What are the odds that you travel hundreds of miles across the world, only to meet the person you were trying to escape? Well, if you are Peter Bretter, the odds are quite large. In Nicholas Stoller’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall , fate and lack of free will play a large role in determining the destiny of the main characters. In the film, Peter Bretter, a composer for a television drama, is in a relationship with Sarah Marshall, who is the lead actress on the same drama. However, not before long, she breaks off the relationship with him for another musician. Then, he travels down to Hawaii to forget about her, but, as fate and determinism should play out, Peter meets Sarah and her new partner down at the same resort in Hawaii. While there was a state of inevitability in this scenario, there was more so a lack of free will in Peter Bretter’s life, as the film is symbolic of this very same lack of free will. The feeling of not being able to escape your fears and demons is quite the annoying one.
