Movies at Night

I have started a bit of a tradition here at my school, where I show films related to the literature we read in class. Students must bring in a note from a parent/guardian to view the film, but the students seem to enjoy it, especially since I give a very few extra credit points for the viewings. Add extra credit to anything and students will do it!

I showed:

Chocolat for Magical Realism,
Interview with a Vampire and Dracula for Gothic Literature,
Marie Antoinette for A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, and
A Man Called Horse for Fools Crow by James Welch (mainly for the Sun Dance).

So far the movies are a hit!

    see if you can get yourself a copy of the Hallmark production of Frankenstein. It’s really the best one I’ve seen – the Kenneth Branaugh version sucked…

    Wish I’d had your class in high school, Doc. But damn, you hadn’t been born yet.

    Great idea!

    Oo! I’ve been wondering about Marie Antoinette. I can’t figure ANYTHING about the movie from the previews and blerbs I’ve read except, “oo, pritty colors!”
