The new word I discovered is supplicant. A supplicant can be a fervently religious person who prays to God for help with a problem, and it can also be someone who begs earnestly for something she or he wants. Roland says he's happy that his daughter turned out to be an activist and not a supplicant. He said that when Ginger told him about the time she went to church with Rosa.
One of my favorite quotes of the film:
Ginger: I’ve loved you, Rosa, but we are very different. You dream of everlasting love, not me. Despite the horror and the sorrow, I love our world. I want us all to live. What really matters is to live and if we live, there will be nothing to forgive.
