Final Essay: Sociological Film Analysis (6-8 pages, double-spaced, Times 12 point font)

Extensively and accurately reference and integrate two (2) theories from our course into an in-depth sociological analysis of a film of your choosing.
Use this outline for your paper:

1. Write a clear introduction, in which you name the film, very briefly describe its premise, and very briefly explain its sociological importance. (1 paragraph)

2. Clearly identify the character(s) under analysis. Include their social characteristics, such as their sex, gender, race/ethnicity, age, class, sexual orientation, education level, and anything else that is important to a full and accurate portrait of each character. (1 paragraph)

3. Explain the social context for these characters which is presented in the film. Include membership and reference groups, relevant social institutions, community characteristics, and so on. In using these terms, define them and reference the course text. While you may use (very) brief summaries of plot and scenes to explain and interpret the material, understand that this is neither a general plot summary nor a movie review – all description should be relevant to the analysis. (1-2 paragraphs)

4. THIS IS THE BULK OF YOUR ESSAY: Reference and cite two distinct sociological perspectives (theories or concepts) from the course text to analyze the characters’ behaviors and interactions in the film. For example, you could use Conflict Theory and Symbolic Interactionism to analyze their behaviors and interactions. Each application of the theory should cover 1-2 pages of your assignment. Make sure to fully integrate the application of the theory referenced, do not merely make a one sentence reference stating, “this reminds me of …” (4-6 paragraphs, totaling 3-4 pages of the 6-8 page paper)

5. Explain what you believe the filmmaker is trying to say about the social representations here, then provide your own interpretation of the behaviors and interactions as portrayed, using concepts from course texts in your analysis. Discuss any biases you see represented in the film. You may include here your own feelings as a viewer – this can include your ‘gut’ feelings, but also make sure to explain your perception in a sociologically informed manner.

(1-2 paragraphs, totaling 1/2-1 page of the 6-8 page paper)
6. Discuss how you think this film might affect viewers’ perception and understanding of the social issues represented (i.e. does the film promote tolerance of difference? Does it reinforce stereotypes about race, class, gender, etc?). Provide examples from the film to support your assertions. (1-2 paragraphs, totaling 1/2-1 page of the 6-8 page paper)
7. Write a clear conclusion, in which you remind the reader of why the film is sociologically interesting and important, what sociological theories it exemplifies, and how it might impact our culture. (1 paragraph)

• Proofread your paper to ensure you have written a clear and coherent argument.

• You should use (quote & paraphrase) our course text extensively, always taking care to properly reference in ASA style. Plagiarism will result in a failing grade for the course and can lead to disciplinary action.

• Outside sources, such as academic journal articles, may be used to supplement your analysis, but do not cite any sources that are not academic in nature (i.e. no blogs, websites, magazines, etc.).
