The focus of these reflections and discussions will be the themes of the films, not the plots. This means you are to reflect on what the film was about, not what happened in it.
Write a 1-2 page reflection paper on one of the themes. The papers will focus on how the theme impacts your own life, and it is not to be just vague musings on the theme in general. Apply it to your life!
For instance, you might use one of these sentences to begin your reflections:
–â€œOne of the themes in this film that really struck me was X, becauseâ€¦â€
–â€œI could identify with the theme of X because â€¦â€
–â€œI admire character X because â€¦â€
–â€œIf I were character X, I would have acted differently in this way â€¦
–â€œCharacter X showed the kind of negative traits that have impacted my life in these waysâ€¦â€
