Its 2021. There’s a live stream of Hayley Kiyoko, Bridgit Mendler, Adam Hicks, Naomi Scott, and Blake Micheal all sitting on a couch rewatching scenes from the movie and audition tapes and talking about their memories from making the film. They discuss how progressive and cool the messages were in the movie, like tackling dress codes and standing up to adults. The group even sings Determinate, for old times’ sake.
Who could have imagined Eddie Redmayne as a Texas cowboy, and who imagined this cowboy as Marius? Or as Stephen Hawking, Lili Elbe or Newt Scamander? Casting creativity/genius recognizes acting versality to enable memorable portrayals.
So I just wanna help y'all understand something about southern stereotypes:
Southern gentlemen are kind, courteous, and protective of women and children. They are often Christian and proud of their southern heritage. Men referred to as southern gentlemen often have more refined etiquette.
Rednecks are basically southern gentlemen without the refined etiquette. They take pride in industry, which is why their yards are often reminiscent of salvage yards-they plan on using most of the things there and are just waiting for the time to complete their projects. They do like to hunt, but they are respectful in doing so. They are hardworking people.
White trash have none of the characteristics of southern gentlemen. They are arrogant, belligerent, and like to cheat the system. Their yards look like junkyards-they have no intention of doing anything with any of that stuff, they just couldn’t be bothered to get rid of it. They hunt out of season, teach their kids racism and abusive tendencies, and do their best to avoid work. These are the people who you see collecting welfare checks and never working.
Hillbillies are just rural folks from the hills or mountains who don’t interact much with society. They may have any mixture of good or bad traits.
Hicks are rural folks who are regarded as unintelligent.
Country boys/girls are raised in the South, usually outside cities, and while they vary in their manners, beliefs, and such, they are generally accustomed to hard labor.
So basically most southern stereotypes have been morphed and merged in the eyes of people from elsewhere.
When it comes to country girls y'all have taken the idea of a young woman who has been raised on a farm, works hard, and is proud of her efforts and roots and tried your best to replace it with the image of a city girl who wishes that she were living in the country because she thinks that marrying a country boy sounds romantic.
Also, although most of y'all think that everyone in the South is horribly racist, know this: those of us who are truly proud of southern culture are proud of everything from the Mexican and African to the French and German cultures that have come together to create our culture.
And it’s frankly offensive that y'all merge the ideas of rednecks and white trash when you think of the South, because while rednecks are pretty uncommon as you go North, white trash are in no short supply anywhere around the world.
On this very special Canada Day — the 150th anniversary of Confederation — we note Eddie Redmayne’s significant visits.
