Shannon Elizabeth, the main character in “Poker Face” gets off easy. Shannon is a street thug who sells illegal drugs, and is hardly the most innocent character in the movie. In fact, the movie ends up portraying her as being the most evil.
She is the son of a wealthy narcotics dealer and was raised in a house full of rich people. Shannon’s father played a major role in his life – by the time he reached adulthood, he was out in the world, running his own business, so that his sons could do the same.
Shannon came from an abusive home, but there are a few clues to her troubled past that keep surfacing in the movie. There’s a scene where she calls her best friend to buy cigarettes and her friend is upset with her for calling, because she wasn’t going to smoke anyway. It’s a subtle detail that can be picked up easily.
But, it’s not the only instance of embellishment throughout the movie. A couple of other things also become clear in the entire scene. One, Shannon is very fragile emotionally.
In reality, she would have quickly lost her temper and told her friend to stop calling her because she didn’t want to smoke. Her friend would have taken it as a sign that she was nervous. However, in the movie, she doesn’t show any signs of emotion.
She’s also the street thug who became the ruthless cashier at the drive-through. In real life, she wouldn’t be able to have this kind of job. She couldn’t wait for her first paycheck.
In fact, the character of Shannon Elizabeth, played by Charlize Theron, has a difficult time adjusting to the outside world. The character of Shana Elizabeth has a tough time adjusting because she’s not accustomed to the ordinary aspects of everyday life. In the movies, the streets are what they are – the streets are real, they’re cold, and they have people who are different than you.
In real life, drug dealers aren’t often caught on camera, and that fact is part of the problem. In the movie, the camera and the actors seem to be on the run when they enter a store, so they have the camera constantly panning around their faces to find them.
The protagonist of the movie, the cashier, tries to get away from the thieves, but they find him anyway. In reality, however, there are cameras everywhere in this type of situation. There are cameras that are connected to fences, and cameras that are attached to the rear view mirror of car windows.
But, in real life, it is not the thieves who usually catch the men, but the camera, which gives them the hint that they’ve been watched. They’re caught and arrested.
Despite the fact that this is an interesting subplot, it does not fit the category of ‘street thugs’. In real life, being a prostitute in this type of profession is about sex – the kind of sex that doesn’t really match up to the genre of movie, and the kind of sex that doesn’t allow for much character development.
It just doesn’t fit into the genre. In reality, most street prostitutes are exploited, abused, and controlled.
