Movies often have resounding messages just as literature does; themes of right and wrong, ethics, moral dilemmas, coming of age, plot development and irony are just a few of their common traits. Each chapter begins with information on the film, its background and things to watch for before delving into detailed, multi-layered discussion questions. Students will use thinking skills as they sort out character's actions and intentions throughout the movies. Composition questions and activities for further studies allow you to expand your movie watching experience into as detailed an adventure as you wish! 191 pages, softcover with glossary. 17 movies covered.
