The true story of Erin Brockovich shows the triumph of the single mom over huge corporate interests as an astounding example of human moral courage. Similarly, the story of The Bride in Quentin Tarantino's 2003 action film "Kill Bill" is entirely fictitious but demonstrates in exaggerated cinematographic form the value of physical courage. This paper examines the theme of courage and shows how it is portrayed throughout both movies.

From the Paper:

"Were it not for her rigorous traditional training sessions, The Bride would not have had the courage to take on a whole army of enemies as she did throughout the film. Her physical endurance during the training sessions enabled her to endure the remarkable amounts of pain she encountered through her battles. Kill Bill illustrates how physical and mental courage converge to strengthen character. The Bride's rewards were not fully realized until the sequel to Tarantino's movie, when the protagonist confronts Bill and reunites with her child."
