Describe the culture of the main characters in this film? Is the culture in this film a patriarchy? Why or why not? Can you find examples of sexual harassment in this film?
How does the culture define the appropriate female role? Male role? Which characters fulfill these roles and which do not? How do the characters make sense of those who do not fulfill these roles?  How does this film help to socialize the viewer into particular norms relating to the roles of man/woman, participant in a romantic relationship, member of a family? What would a child seeing this film learn about these roles?

 This is an  individual assignment requiring each student to write and submit a paper analyzing the film by addressing the assigned concepts and questions. I encourage you to use ideas from group discussion, but your written answers should be your own.  Remember that the goal of this project is to use the film to analyze sociological topics. In addition to specifically addressing the assigned questions, think about how your film reflects your reality: is it accurate? Is it an instance of the media socializing viewers?
