I am new to this forum and I desperately need help urgently.
I have got to write an essay on 'Brick'. Could you please answer my question?

What gender roles are assigned to the male and female characters in the film?
How does 'Brick' engage with the film noir character types?
To what extent does 'Brick' adhere to/subvert the character types?

This feels suspiciously like asking strangers to do your homework for you, but here's some food for thought, regarding gender roles.
Women are perceived as being manipulative, and part of the reason for that stereotype is that in the past, women couldn't do anything for themselves, because they had no power in society/government/business. So, many women learned to manipulate men into doing what they wanted, because that was the only way for them to get it. Laura's character is almost an archetypal example of this, part of what gives the movie its feeling of hearkening to the past. She manipulates all the men around her: Tug, Brad, Brendan, the Pin, etc. And in the end, she almost got what she wanted...

Lina, if you could summarize what you've learned so far from your research, it may help the rest of us sweep away some of the cobwebs that have formed in our brains regarding Brick. We may then be able to add to what you already know, steer you elsewhere if we think you're on the wrong track, and lead you to other reference materials.

Basically, i have to analyse and contrast the construction of male and female gender roles in 'Brick'. What gender roles are assigned to the male and female characters in the film? How do the male and female characters compare?

I know about film noir and a lot about 'Brick'. But i am stuck on what to write for the above questions. If anyone could help me, please answer the question. :?

As always women in noir films are portrayed in a negative light. In Brick there is a large contrast between the male and female gender roles.
