AMC Northpark
AMC Firewheel
Cinemark 14
Cinemark Webb Chapel
City Cinemas Angelika

The Extra Credit Assignment
As if the opportunity to see an Oscar-nominated film for FREE wasn't enough, here is a further opportunity to get extra credit for doing so.
Write a one-page, typed, reflective essay wherein you establish your take on the film as a whole. Be sure to cite specific reasons ( reference to the film itself) to justify your reaction. You may comment upon:
  • the cinematic quality of the film (direction, acting, style, etc)
  • the historical quality of the film (plot, veracity, anachronisms, etc)
  • the film's effect on you personally (how you grew as a human being as a direct result of watching this film)
Due date: before we leave for Spring Break 2015.
