Legally Blond

The document at stakes is a photo which is taken from a film entitled « Legally Blond ». The movie was released in 2001 by Robert Luketic and tells the story of Ellen Woods, a blond girl. She had a boyfriend who broke up because he thought that to have a blond girlfriend wasn’t good for his political carrier. Ellen Woods decided to take her revenge and started to studying law at Harvard.

I- Description

The central character, the focal point of the picture is a sexy-looking blond young lady, in her twenty’s. She’s walking on a campus, in a low-necked tight fitting dress.

They are scandalized by her outfit (= not suitable = unsuitable) that why she seems so out of place. And even if the man on the left looks down at her, she’s tickled pink.

In the film, Ellen Woods becomes a successful lawyer. It shows that you can’t judge a book by is cover, and it breaks apart the cliché of the “dumb blond”.

In looking at the photo, we have to understand that is no use jumping to conclusions. She’s different and atypical from students, that’s why she’s rejected by the others.
Then, we can say that it denounces intolerance and narrow-mindless.

People have preconceived ideas. They’re prejudiced against the
