Having seen the movie, you will write an original 3 page minimum review
according to the following model:
A brief summary of the plot and setting (no more than about a paragraph)
A review of the movie from the purely critical standpoint; that is, what makes it good viewing (or not). What did you enjoy about it? What did you not enjoy? What was your big takeaway?
A critique of the movie’s authenticity. Does it support your understanding of how prejudice, discrimination and stereotyping work? Do you come away from this movie understanding the themes and key terms of Project 3 better? Does this movie connect to any of the other sources for this Project? (Connect the movie to at least one other source you have worked with in this unit.)
Evaluate whether this movie is a worthwhile watch for someone desiring to understand better concepts, terms, themes of Project 3. Give its strong points and weak points in brief, and give it a rating: “three stars out of five” or “B+” or “thumbs down” … something of that sort.
