2. Write a minimum 800-word paper describing the movie you chose.

Paragraph 1 – Write a short introduction that gives a brief overview of the movie

Paragraph 2 – Write about the history of the story

Paragraph 3 – Write about the musical score – style, composers, instruments used etc.

Paragraph 4 – Write about any architecture that was used in the movie and how it relates to the story

Paragraph 5 – Write about the costumes and set designs used

Paragraph 6 – Write about the art and/or sculpture used (if any)

Paragraph 7 – Write a concluding paragraph including your recommendation.

Not all of these paragraphs may be necessary.

Think of it as if you have been assigned by a newspaper to write about the movie – not necessarily a critical review – just a very thorough description.

I will be grading based on the quality of your writing, attention to detail, and detail of content and analysis. Try to use as many terms as possible that you have learned from this semester.

The assignment is worth 10 percentage points toward your total for the semester
