Film responses are proofread and free of grammatical errors, they are not a summary of the film and should reference the authors of the readings using citations such as “According to Massey (1999)” as much as possible as opposed to relying on personal stories or opinion. You are required to engage all the readings assigned for that week with the film, meaning you must cite each reading at least twice in your response and connect them with the film.

Your film response can do All the following:
1. Address a theme or KEY word(s) that ties the week’s readings to the film.
2. Use a direct quote or passage from a reading(s) to illustrate a scene or story line in the film
that weaves together the readings for that week.
