| Glass Menagerie
The movie starts out by introducing a small family in the 1940's. Tom, Laura, and their mother Amanda live in a small apartment in what seems to be in a city. You then learn that the father of the family ran away when years ago and that Laura is painfully shy and doesn't like to be noticed. Do to her shy nature she dropped out of her classes in college because she didn't want to have to talk to anyone. Tom hates his job and wants to leave to find a better one but he also needs to work to support his family since he is the only provider in the household. After temporarily resolving the conflict between Tom and his mother, Amanda asks Tom to invite a gentleman over to meet his sister. The man that Tom brings over to the house turns out to be the man that Laura liked in high school, Jim. The two end up bonding together and in the end kissing each other. Jim then had to explain that he is already in a steady relationship with another women and plans to marry her soon. After learning that Jim wrecked Laura's heart, Tim was devastated and ran away from his family only to think about them every day while he is gone.
