There are many themes and topics that authors and directors can choose but the theme for the novel Lockie Leonard Human Torpedo by Tim Winton and film Lex Rory is very similar Both these narratives expressed the same issues some of which were bullying popularity relationships and male and female characteristics Although these texts have similar issues they do have differences such as how the issues that were used were constructed This essay will discuss the similarities of the issues between the two texts and how theses issues are constructed Both narratives used relationships to play a great part relationships such as friendships family and love Love played a large part between the two narratives In Lex Rory Lex knew all about Dai and how she felt deep inside even more than Dais father because Lex supported Dais wish to go to arts school since that was what she wanted but her father wanted her to go into business and follow in his foot steps That was when she wanted to kill herself because he would not let go to art school but Lex came to the rescue and showed Dai that he was always there caring for her In the text Lockie Leonard Human Torpedo Lockie loved Vicki Streeton but Vickis expectation of life is not based on morality If she liked something she did it and this often caused a conflict between Lockie and Vicki and is the main reason why their relationship soured It seems that in these texts both the main male characters made the first move in the forming of their relationships Both narratives use family relationships We know the background of the main characters so we can understand them In Lex and Rory Dais mother cares about the children because she stated what are you a wimp to try to force him to put what ever he has got so he can teach
