Among the story lines in Crash has to do with a white female, Jean. Although she is going for walks towards her car with her hubby, she views two dark males and immediately grabs her husband's hand. This is actually the first example you see that suggests Jean is ethnocentric and by a very individual culture. Following Jean's car is hijacked, she phone calls a wilton locksmith to change each of the locks onto her house. The locksmith, Daniel, is Asian and overhears Jean dialling another locksmith to come change the locks once again because the girl doesn't trust Daniel, demonstrating that the girl believes her culture is superior to others. Daniel's response shows that he's probably affected by acculturative anxiety. Next, Blue jean gets irritated with her Mexican house maid, because the girl hasn't purged the dishwasher again. Blue jean shows that her views stick to the high electric power distance traditions because she actually is emphasizing that she retains the power. Sure enough, Jean is catagorized down and wishes to go to the clinic. After realizing that nobody can there be for her, her maid is the person that winds up taking her to the hospital. Once Jean is house from the hospital she ultimately ends up calling the maid her best friend, showing that this wounderful woman has realized that her ethnocentric frame of mind caused her misunderstandings/miscommunications while using maid. Will she modify? Probably not, but for the time being Jean has realized that she has nobody there for her except for Helen. In conclusion, Jean's ethnocentric character leads to a large number of miscommunications in the movie, although there were other factors such as her vertical traditions views, her beliefs, and her values which also caused miscommunications.
