Questions on Hero:
In Match Point, the fact that Chris Wilton is in world-class tennis competing against the
best players in the world; this does not mean that he has become a sports hero. Instead, how he
plays the game and wins is what makes Chris a hero. Still, in the case of an athlete, he does not
become a hero if at all there are no altruistic acts of heroism that portray risk or sacrifice. Further,
as Chris enters the upper-class society, I think he tries to adapt to the status of Tom’s wealthy
family despite being from a poor background. The element of poverty is evident in Chris’s
previous apartment, which looks old-fashioned; unlike the flashy house, he moves into with his
wife, Chloe. He even starts reading classic works for fun. So far, I believe that his values are
materialistic; hence, he is not sincere in his quest for pursuing Chloe. With the success of his
plans, Chris manages to get a high position in Chloe’s father’s business. However, I do not
believe that his achievements are a result of having excellent business skills. Instead, his success
is heroic as a result of knowing influential people who boost his growth.
Questions on the Flaw [Hamartia]:
Based on Chris’s personality, his flaws make him a tragic hero. For instance, I can say
that his love for Chloe is not genuine due to his greed and selfish personality. From the
beginning, I believe that the very moment he encountered his wealthy friend, Tom; he knew his
life would be transformed by engaging Chloe. This is evident when Chris says, “I think it is
important to be lucky in anything” (Aronson, Wiley, & Darwin, 2005). Therefore, his encounter
with Chloe is a game of trying his luck in getting wealthy. I would further say that Chris
selfishness makes him pursue Nola well knowing that this might jeopardize his marriage.

Questions on the hero’s downfall [Peripeteia]:
Further, when I reflect on the events that take place in Chris’s life, in truth, he has a
downfall because, in the beginning, he has a genuine and humble lifestyle. However, when he
gets involved with Chloe’s family, events turn out tragic for him. Due to his flaws, this leads
Chris to lust for a woman, Nola, who he enjoys being intimate with. This can be justified when
Chris tells Nola, “Did anyone ever tell you, you have very sensual lips” (Aronson, Wiley, &
Darwin, 2005). His flaw further influences him to want his wife because of her wealth. His
actions tend to worsen the events in his life since, at some point; he even commits murder.
Questions on the Recognition [Anagnorisis]:
Considering that the tragic events tend to worsen in the film, Chris does not confess to
the police or his wife about the murder he commits. Instead, he recognizes his flaws by admitting
to ghostly figures that approach him in his sleep. Still, there is recognition in Chris’s face when
he realizes that Nola is pregnant, and he has no idea of how to handle the situation. Chris seems
frustrated where he ends up shouting to Nola, saying, Nola! Calm down! Calm the fuck down”
after arguing with Nola that she should terminate the pregnancy (Aronson, Wiley, & Darwin,
2005). Further, towards the end of the film, when Chris later meets Nola’s baby, he realizes that
this would have adverse consequences on his marriage.
Questions on Catharsis:
Finally, as a viewer, the tragic events that Chris goes through make me pity him because
his actions make him blow away all the good things he had in life. Although all through the

tragic events Chris manages to suppress his feelings of guilt, this instead intensifies my pity on
him because he failed to recognize that his actions would lead to his downfall.
