There is nothing wrong with that.

"Brought together by harsh circumstance" is a dependent clause that adds to the description of Joel and Ellie. Also "circumstance" does not need an "s". For all we know ONE thing brought Joel and Ellie together.

 

You should go back to school because you obviously need it.


Am I supposed to be offended? It still wouldn't be the correct answer. 

 

"Brought together by a harsh circumstance"

 

there you go!

If it was a single thing you would need to say "brought together by harsh circumstance." There's no denying that the sentence is gramatically incorrect. 


It would be if that was the end of the sentence, but then there is a comma after circumstance, and the rest of the sentence unfolds.  It is correct

Nope you don't need an "a" there. Harsh is an adjective it's describing circumstance. 

 

Try again kiddo! Hell, maybe you'll get an A on your next paper thanks to all of the schooling your getting from me! Smiley Happy

This is how Eyecue quoted the sentence:

 

"Brought together by harsh circumstance."

 

with a period.

I didn't write that. The guy I quoted it from probably did it that way to show that he felt it was a case of bad grammar. I was judging the sentence above that. 

 

Clearly, you need a lesson in reading as well.

I think some people here are thinking of the phrase "pomp and circumstance," they only time you dont need to add the "es."

EyeCue is correct about the 'circumstance' thing. The grammar of that synopsis is fine.
