A Character In A Movie/Tv Program/Story – IELTS Cue Card 56
Describe a character in a book you have read or a film you have seen.
You should say:
- Who this character is
- When did you first see/ read about him/ her
- What kind of person this character is
Considering the fact that I am a movie–nerd, I have adored so many characters so far. And today I want to share about one person that makes a great impression on me in terms of appearance and characteristics – Juliet. She is a remarkable Shakespeare’s earlier play – Romeo and Juliet. In fact, she is a very well–developed character with real emotions and personalities. The story of Romeo and Juliet happened in Verona, Italy, and is a very sad love story due to the hatred between two important families: the Montague and the Capulet. At first, I was really astonished to see how strongly she loves Romeo, Juliet even goes against her whole family to protect her love. But then I notice that Juliet doesn’t start off as this strong young woman, she changes in the story. When we first met Juliet, she was a 13 year – old girl, she was quiet and usually does what her parents want her to do. But by the end of the film, she moves from being this young girl to a mature, young woman who dares to stand up for her own happiness. It’s my opinion that the strong and beautiful Juliet is the character who makes this love story so popular.
