Either you believe the director’s artistic choices SUPPORT the novel’s message or you think it DISTRACTS.
You cannot argue both.
Step 2: Articulate and defend your claim using SPECIFIC EVIDENCE from the film. These means I will
expect you to reference exact moments and the CHOICES THE DIRECTOR makes in these moments.
Step 3: Make sure you are showcasing your writing skills. I am grading for structure and word choice, as
well as analysis.
