The Boys Really Be Boat’n

The Boys In The Boat.


The Boys In The Boat is a film that was based at a time of great poverty in America. At this time in America the great depression was on its last leg with the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin. This was also a great time of despair and depression for Germany and all the people that lived there. The significance of having the games in Germany when there was great despair and hopelessness that even in these hopeless times there is still hope to look for. This story is about all the athletes that wanted a chance to work just to get a shot to have something better.

The boys in the boat are a triumph for the men that were in this hard time of the great depression to try to get a shot at whatever they can to get enough to get by. These men that tried out for this rowing team for Washington State did not do it for pleasure, they did it simply because it was the only option. It was the only way they could get a chance.

He is always on a new adventure. On some kind of quest to do something challenging. He wakes up and seeks a new thrill. Kaden is a teenager here at Grantsville High School. He dresses with clothes he finds from different places and different sources. Everything has its story. Each item has its own tale. Like the Ocean Earth hat he wears. He attained the hat while in Australia. It’s been skydiving. Kaden has been to every corner of the world. He’s been to Australia to skydive and sail. Uruguay to hike on great trails. Africa to go on safaris, visit villages, gorilla trekking, needing to hike into jungles. He feels that doing these adventures fulfills his life and gives him meaning to his life. No matter what he has energy on these adventures, he says, “The energy just happens so I can keep on doing what I need to.” It’s a thrill everyday for Kaden Allen. Going from place to place, continent to continent. He travels onward and forward.
