"The overall structure of your essay makes sense, and you pull solid examples from both the book and the movie to support your thesis statement. However, remember to clearly identify examples pulled from the movie by mentioning the name of the film as you do with examples from the book. Without such explicit details, readers who are unfamiliar with your sources might get confused about which one you’re discussing at any given point. In terms of writing convention errors, there’s a parallel structure problem in your thesis, and you have a tendency to place commas where they’re distracting and unnecessary as seen in the phrases “change, and growth are” and “accepted, and telepaths.” Generally, it’s not a good idea to include a random quote from a famous person in your writing, but if you’re going to do so, a citation is needed. When you have a parenthetical citation at the end of a statement, a period should be placed after the citation itself."
