Abstract

v SUMMARY Lazuardian, Adistia. 2019. “Father Talks” in the Movie Bridge to Terabithia (2007). Thesis. English Department, Faculty of Letters, Universitas Negeri Malang. Advisors: (1) Dr. Mirjam Anugerahwati, M.A., (2) Aulia Apriana S.S., M.Pd., Keyword: father talks, the differences in father talks to son and daughter, movie Bridge to Terabithia Besides parents’ gender, children’s gender also influenced the way parents talk to their children. Some studies found that parents treat their children differently based on their gender (Haalbom, 2014). Fathers are more likely to treat daughters and sons differently than mothers because most fathers still believe that a daughter needs to be loving and a son needs to be strong. This study applied a descriptive qualitative design. This research identified the differences in the way father talks to son and daughter in the Movie Bridge to Terabithia (2007). This study focuses on the differences in the way father talks to his son and daughter in several situations namely giving order, scolding, consoling and giving affection. I used the Sexism theory proposed by Glick and Fiske (1996) to analyze benevolent sexism in the way the father talks to son and daughter. The findings show that the way father talks to son and daughter in the Movie Bridge to Terabithia (2007) is often different. Father in the movie Bridge to Terabithia is softer towards his daughter and stricter towards his son. He uses more supportive language toward his daughter and tended to use directive speech to his son. The father was also more likely to scold his son and give more affection to his daughter. Even though several scenes show that the father talks to his son and daughter differently, the way the father consoles his son and daughter is similar since in the end, the father realizes that he was too strict toward his son. Children’s gender influence the way father talks to son and daughter in the Movie Bridge to Terabithia. Father communicates and talks about feeling more towards his daughter than his son. It’s influence the relationship between father, daughter and son. In the end, father and daughter have a warm and close relationship while father and son have a cold and distance relationship.
