Discuss the differences and similarities between recluses, for example, Flynn Carsen in "The Librarian"; William Forrester in "Finding Forrester"; and Willy Wonka in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" (either version).
If the discussion centres around Wonka, it would be interesting to compare the reclusive attitudes illustrated by both the eponymous Willy Wonka and Grandpa Joe. – ProtoCanon7 years ago

Carl and Wonka would be really cool to compare! – LilyaRider7 years ago
This might be improved by adding one more factor into the mix. For example, instead of just focusing on how recluses are portrayed in film, you could see how that is changed over time, how different countries seem to portray recluses, or something to that effect. – Ian Miculan7 years ago
Another possible conclusion could be the evolution of the individual characters. How many of them remain reclusive, while others become more accepting of the outside world? What does it mean for the overall purpose of the movie? – Tarben7 years ago
