Johnny Tremain Movie
These characters gave this film variety and creativity which made me learn more about the real events. Paul Revere was a master silversmith and one of the leaders of the Revolutionary forces in Boston. In this film, he played an important role as one Of the leaders Of the Sons Of Liberty. He is also the one who Johnny goes to for help on the design of the handle on Jonathan Let’s tea cup, who tells him to make the handle deeper and larger. Paul Revere is most famous for alerting the Colonial militia to the approach of British forces before the tattles of Lexington and Concord.The Sons of Liberty were another important part in this film.
The Sons of bribery was an organization of American patriots that originated in the pre- independence North American British colonies. The group was formed to protect the rights of the colonists. They are best known for undertaking the Boston Tea Party in 1 773 in reaction to the Tea Act, which led to the Intolerable Acts. Samuel Adams and Paul Revere, Joseph Warren, and James Otis were some notable members. The Boston Tea was a key event in the growth of the American Revolution.It was a nonviolent political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, in 1773. The colonists disguised as Indians, destroyed the entire supply of tea by dumping the chests of tea into Boston Harbor, ruining the tea.
Johnny and his friend, Rah, partook in this event. Johnny Terrain is the fourteen-year-old apprentice of the Boston silver- smith Ephraim Alphas. When Johnny’s hand is disfigured in an accident that happened trying to fix the handle on Mr.. Let’s cup, he can no longer work as a silversmith, and he’s forced to find another job.Johnny finds a new life among the leaders of the committee and finds himself transformed from a selfish youth into a patriotic young man. Although he is a fictional character, he is the main protagonist in this film and an important role in the movie.
Priscilla Alphas is Ephraim Alpha’s granddaughter. She is loyal, selfless, caring and one of Johnny’s closest friends. In the beginning of the film, Johnny confides a secret with her, saying that he is secretly related to Mr.. Late. When they are in court, she is brought in as a witness tachyon did to steal Mr..

) He was very kind to Johnny and offered him a place to stay even though he could no longer work for him because of his hand. All of these events and characters played an important role in this film and eloped me get a more in depth understanding of the American Revolution from different perspectives.Johnny Terrain is a work of historical fiction, combining real people and events like Paul Revere, Sons of Liberty, and the Boston Tea Party, and fictional ones like Jonathan Terrain, Priscilla Alphas, and Ephraim Alphas. I feel that this film gave me a lot more information in a way that I could interpret it. The fictional characters helped shape the historical events that occurred and led up to the American Revolution and the real events helped shape how America became today.
