2. How does your media product represent particular social groups ?

In our opening, our character is presented in a very formal fashion wearing a suit whilst wheeling his suitcase into his car bonnet. However the initial character who kidnaps the child is dressed in all black which is stereotypical as most crimes are committed in an 'all black dress code'. Another stereotype I often pick up on movies i trying to make the Villian look like a normal member of society by dressing him in a normal fashion. In the Stepfather for example we see Dylan Walsh preparing a light breakfast in a suit and jacket with a clean shave making him look genuinely good looking. However we later find out he is a murderer. Exactly the same in our story, we see our character preparing a breakfast in a suit looking quite good looking then we find out that the character who kidnaps the child in the beginning is driving the same car as the ' innocent good looking man'.
