Dwayne's driving force throughout the entire movie is his desire to be a jet pilot. He is the only one that seems well-equipped to achieve this. His step-father is chasing empty promises about a book that will never be published. His uncle was very close to being exactly who he wanted to be, but then everything fell apart. Dwayne has the drive and self-control to do exactly what he sets out to do. He originally takes a vow of silence until he has achieved his goal. Support from his family is scattered and sometimes begrudging. His step-father may not support his dream, but he admires his “winner” attitude. His mother is against him being a jet pilot, but uses the dream to bribe him into coming on the road trip. When Dwayne finds out that he is color blind and therefore cannot be a jet pilot, he breaks. All of the emotion he had been keeping inside comes pouring out. All of his pent up rage against his dysfunctional family is finally released. It takes him a long time to recover form this discovery, but when he does, he winds up giving a speech that sums up the entire theme of the movie. Before Olive performs her talent at the pageant, Frank and Dwayne are standing on a pier.

    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.
