The animals (characters) in this movie acted as though they were humans. At the beginning, everything seemed normal, although the animals spoke to one another. Before I knew it, everything got out of hand and the people shot at the animals. Then, the animals attacked the people. The most depressing part of the whole movie was the fact that the pigs had all the power. The power to run the farm as they chose, the power to make the rules and the power to communicate
with the humans until greed took over and everything got out of hand.
In the beginning of the movie, the Pilkington’s drove down the rode, their children were hitting the pigs with slingshots and it appeared to be a normal, okay thing to do. They didn’t get in trouble in fact it was apparent that these boys needed some discipline. This family apparently had money and because of their social status, felt it was alright to treat animals and people, that weren’t of their
caliber, as if they meant nothing to society. There was a great deal of class conflict between the family that lived on the farm, the Jones’, and the Pilkingtons. The Jones’ owed money to the Pilkingtons and they were taunted throughout the movie about it.
On the other hand, the animals had personalities of their own and were holding meetings in the barn. They would discuss such things as how bad they were being treated by Mr. Jones. He was an alcoholic and drank all the time. He treated the animals poorly and put his drinking and fun before taking care of them. Sometimes they wouldn’t get fed for days. Meanwhile, Mr. Jones heard a lot of
noise going on outside while the animals were having one of their meetings, so he took a shotgun out to the barn and shot into the barn killing the “Old Major”. Because “Old Major” was the lead pig and was shot and slaughtered, the other pigs decided it was time for a Revolution.
