Christine Thayer and Officer John Ryan meet twice in Crash. Their relationship deserves further analyses.

Task 1: Stop watching the film in chapter 11 when Christine realizes she is facing Officer Ryan again (at 1:00:00). Consider chapter 4 'the police check' where they meet in the first place.

Task 2: How are Christine and the Officer portrayed in both scenes (chapter 4 - 'the police check' and the current scene in chapter 11)?

Task 3: How will the scene continue? Write your version before you go on watching the real film.

Task 4: Have your expectations of the characters been fulfilled? How?

Task 5: What makes you like or dislike the characters?

Stop in chapter 11 at 1:00:00
