After watching one of these two films, write a three-page response (12-point font-Times New

Roman, double-spaced). What aspects of the film caught your attention? Why? Most importantly,

what aspects of the film can you relate to the topics we have read about and discussed in class (the

or definitions. The purpose of the paper is to reflect and find connections with the course material

otherwise it is plagiarism!
