However, later discovery reveals that in fact Bluhm lived as a gay (Boggild & Holm, 2015).
The flashback takes as back to London where Tease and Justin met and marry.

Analysis of Working Girl movie by Human Resource Frame In the film Working Girl, ‘Wall Street investment bank’, where Tess works can be viewed as an extended family. When Katharine Parker, (Tess’ boss) breaks her leg in Europe she tells to house sit. This indicates that the relationship between Katharine and Tess was more of an extended family where they could even share ideas. When Tess finds her boyfriend in bed with another woman, she went to live at Katharine’s apartment. In this organization, having a romantic relationship with a colleague is seen as obvious.
This is parlaved by Oliver Platt (Tess’ first boss) tricking Tess into a date with his lascivious colleague, where she publicly insults him. Katharine is in a relationship with Jack Trainer (fellow executive), who later falls in love with Tess (Franklin, 2006). Both Tess and Jack gatecrash the wedding of Trask’s daughter to pitch their plan on pushing on with Tess’s idea. Given that members organization engages in parties, social, family and personal issues together they demonstrated an organization where the relationship is valued and is operated as an extended family.
In this organization individuals as seen to have limitations, skills, prejudices, needs and feelings as elucidated in the human resource frame. Katharine holds an executive position but she is egocentric, prejudiced, and wants to push Tess’ idea as her own. Tess comes up with the idea of merger after looking at the roundabout way. Katherine is limited in terms of formulating ideas. On the other hand, Tess is seen as a person who is skilled in such a way that she can transform a normal issue such as roundabout into an implementable idea such as a merger.
Everyone in this bank has his or her own needs such as Tess has a need of becoming an executive and Katharine has a need of being given credit for ideas generation. Tess is frustrated after learning that she slept with Jack, Trask is furious after learning that Katharine lied about the merger idea, Jack loves Tess and every person in this bank has one or the other feeling (Franklin, 2006). Trask is a servant leader who catalyzes innovation and idea generation. He promotes Tess into a new executive position as a reward for her brilliant idea about merger.
This serves to motivate Tess and encourage other employees to give ideas that can transform the performance of the organization. This gives Tess job satisfaction evident through her call to Cynthia telling her that she landed her dream job. Through the human resource frame, the leadership logic is of attending to people where caring about other is emphasized. After her promotion into a new executive, Tess, allows her secretary to work together with her as colleagues (Franklin, 2006). This is opposed to Katherine’s leadership, which does not give much regard to people who hold lower positions.
The theme of caring is dominant through the film, with Tess portraying a coach, servant, and catalyst form of leadership. Bolman and Deal (2008) suggested that people taking human resource point of view build teamwork through open communication and hiring the right people. Trask holds an open communication where she listens to both Katharine and Tess about the merger idea. He asks Katharine to explain how she came up with the merger idea, and she cannot really explain the source of the idea.
He inquires about how Tess got the idea and she explains roundabout way that led to her idea. By promoting Tess and firing, Katharine Trask seems to emphasize on the idea of getting the right people. Katharine is conceivably not right for her position, and Tess is considered more qualified. As such, the analysis of the watch girl film through the human resource frame reveals that individuals within the organization (Wall Street Investment Bank) are motivated and committed and are essential to the success (Franklin, 2006).
Analysis of ‘The Constant Gardener’ movie by Political frame Political frame looks at the organizations as contest arena characterized by the different interest that compete for power and resources. In no case is this more evident than in ‘the Constant Gardener film’. 3 Bees, the pharmaceutical company, uses its resources and influence to test the tuberculosis drug on the poor population in Kenya. The company executives compete to get more wealth to the company through the drug that has side effects, which are well documented.
They go to every extra mile to ensure that they resources and wealth increases, including corrections, murder, corruption, and issuing threats. On the other hand, Tessa has an interest in having the drug redesign such that it will not have effects on the poor population. She is murdered in her quest to stop the powerful cartel made up of top executives, British high commission staffs, and politicians (Britton, 2007). In the political frame, the difference in opinion is rampart and conflicts are common.
Tessa and Justin have conflicting interest with the pharmaceutical company, where they want to save people and the company wants to make more money. This results into conflicts that lead to the death of Tess, her driver, her doctor colleague (Bluhm), and ultimately Justin. When Justin visits the village to gather data on the killer drug, the armed equestrians raids the village forcing the villagers to flee amongst carnage in a UN plane (Somerville, J. (2006). The scenes in the film are characterized by threats, murder, conflicts of interest and a great quest of the powerful to amass resources and power to themselves.
The conflict in the film arises because power in concentrated in the wrong place. The people vested with the mandate of running the pharmaceutical company, and the British High Commission does not care about the effects of the drug to the Kenya population. The catalyst of the conflict between Justin and Tessa on one side and the pharmaceutical company and other powerful cartel on the other side is scarce resource, formation of wrong and good coalitions and mapping of the political terrain, where the cartels do not want interference in their pharmaceutical malpractice (Britton, 2007). Each in the conflicts.
Justin sets the agenda to unveil the truth about her wife’s death regardless of the risks involved. Similarly, Tessa decides to investigate about the drug despite the risk that involves this initiative. On the other hand, the drug cartel went ahead with their trials despite the side effects of the drug (Somerville, 2006). As such, the ‘The Constant Gardener’ Cleary delves into the issue of politic, deeply unveils the conquest to amass power and resource, and vividly depict the living conflict between the powerful cartels and human right activists, as a true depiction of world looked at in political frame.
