(Ch 1) 40 Years of Film Story – Review Choices

hitch-script
To explore why story is important and why it matters, I encourage you to visit (or revisit) any of the following Oscar-winning/nominate films. Each of these won (or received a nomination) for the Academy Award for screenplay (some original and some adapted). As you watch the film, explore this question: Based on what you’ve learned so far about “story” – Why is this film worthy of an Oscar win for story? If you feel differently, ask yourself why?
Your first film review/evaluation will come from one of these films and is due by Wednesday, September 5 (11:59 PM). Explore the guidelines, expectations, and story-evaluation-rubric-2018 for this project here. You are not limited to word count for this evaluation (but 500-800 will be fine), just make sure that you address the guidelines. Select any of the following films to evaluate.
