Diversity in Society Movie Analysis Paper
1. SYNOPSIS OF THE MOVIE
Story and Plot of the movie—briefly describe (1-2 short paragraphs)
Include the time frame of the story, the geographical location, the culture and the historical setting; the goal of this section is to introduce and to situate the story so that your reader can make sense of your analysis in the sections below.
2. RELATING THE MOVIE TO THE TEXT
In this section of your paper, please relate what you believe the movie tells us about diversity in America. To do this, address the following questions and use the information in Chapter 1 (and most specifically pp. 13-19) of the Koppelman text:
a) Was there a conflict between a certain minority group and a majority group; or, individual members of one group vs. another group? Identify the significant groups and explain how each used labels to positively or negatively define their own group and the other group or group member(s). Was there evidence of more formal negative labeling in the movie? For instance, did school or governmental policies project negative images and terms toward a group or member of a group? What impact did the process of labeling have on the characters? Give examples that show us how and why.
b) Did the approach to diversity exhibited in this movie most closely reflect an exceptionalist perspective or a universalistic perspective to the social problem(s) being discussed? Why do you think so? Did you notice characters exhibiting dogmatic beliefs? Was there an attempt made to indoctrinate characters in some way? What effect did these tactics have on the character(s)? How did your movie relate to our Course’s subject in general?
c) Using the information in Chapter 2 of the Koppelman text, answer the following questions: Did you see evidence of prejudice and/or discrimination in your characters? Identify the types of prejudice and discrimination you saw, (sexism, racism, ableism, etc).
d) As an example, provide a brief description of an exchange between characters that illustrates prejudice (you can paraphrase the conversation; it doesn’t need to be word for word, we just need to have the basic tone given). Does this exchange represent avoidance of a problem? Which of the three types of rationalization identified by Koppelman does/do the character(s) comments fit and why? Are these attitudes and behaviors reflective of society today or have they changed over time?
3. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION
What overall impact did the movie have on you? In other words, what did you learn or how did it change/enhance your understanding? Be specific: did this movie change your perspective about a certain group in society? Did you discover your own hidden prejudices through watching it? How did these discoveries make you feel
