Effects Of Film
This assignment is to watch a popular film (The Help) but view it through a sociological lens instead of just watching for entertainment.
Pay attention to what topics, concepts, and terminology we have discussed in class that are brought up in this movie? Look through the text to be inclusive. Be specific and answer the following:
1) Terminology: what terms and concepts that you have learned from this class can you see depicted in this film? HINT: ethnocentrism, slavery, culture, socialization, mental health, illness, injustice, social construction of reality, etc. Use these terms as you give examples from the film.
2) Which sociological theories can you see in the film? Remember two of these are from a MACRO perspective (conflict theory, functionalism) which is from the societal level. Symbolic Interaction is from a micro level.
3) Choose one issue from the film (environment, racism, homophobia, etc) and explain it from each of the 3 perspectives; functionalism, conflict, and symbolic interaction.
4) Did you gain some insight from the film? If so, what?
5) Would you recommend it to others? Why, why not? Be specific.
This is YOUR OWN WORDS about how this film affected you. You may refer to specific characters when answering these questions, but do NOT tell me the whole film plot. You will lose points if you do.
