How is Grendel's origin alluded to in the story? How is the creature depicted in the film versus how he is described in the story? Why might the audience feel sympathy towards this creature in the film?

I'm answering questions my teacher provided after reading Beowulf in your Literature book,and then watching the 2007 Beowulf film.

Grendel is an immortal demon who is the descendant of Cain from the Old Testament. I'm not sure which film version you are referring to, there are a few. 

I'm referring to the film that came out in 2007 with Angelena Jolee
