Despite her success in acting and being most celebrated Hollywood actress, Jolie has a unique character due to her role towards humanitarian and love for children in her real life (Tracy, 2008). This depicts the reason I chose her from the movie ‘The Good Shepherd’. In the film, Jolie takes the role of a wife to a CIA agent called Clover Wilson (Coppola, 2006). She appears too grounded in protecting her only child from being killed like her husband. She portrays a character of a protector guardian who does all she can to save the child.
A protector is a person who is silently forceful and sensitive to the objective. The person tends to be secretive and individualistic. In addition, a protector adheres strictly to set values and able to persevere and remain persistent until the duty is fulfilled. In the movie, Clover Wilson despite the unfolding of the family that was devastating, she holds her tongue until the end. She persevered the twisting of the family, swallowed the bitterness of rejection, and stood as the unloved wife just for the sake of protecting the son (Bella, 2009).
