Les Misérables (2013)
The learning objective of this movie report is to enable students to describe and analyze different social science perspectives and its applications. A few steps may help: 1. Select a theorist/theory/social issue whom/which you are interested in. 2. From this theorist/theory/issue, identify a particular concept/theory/issue that you want to explore [details see below].
Questions to think:
Choose ONLY ONE question or you propose ONE reasonable topic/question.
1. Which social science perspective (Durkheimian, Marxian, Weberian, Foucauldian, and Bourdieuian) on social stratification and social mobility are applicable to todays Hong Kong or other cities/countries? Critically explain your view with examples.
2. Critically examine whether Marxist theories on capitalism and exploitation can be applied to explaining anti-landlord hegemony movement in todays Hong Kong or somewhere. Explain your answers with relevant examples.
3. Gender-stereotype images are usually quite common in the mass media. Men are portrayed as strong, forceful, masculine, and determined. Women, on the other hand, are shown as being weak, feminine, emotional, and sensible. Base on the movie of Les Misérables, do you agree with the statement Beauty is a question of physical properties, social values, or capital? with examples.
4. Any sociological imagination you can draw from the movie of Les Misérables for the Chief Executive Election in March 2017 or American President Election in November 2016?
5. Base on the movie of Les Misérables, do you agree with the statement the body is a site of social control (Michel Foucault 1975)?
6. Any reasonable topic which you can draw it from the movie Les Misérables.
How to Write Movie Report?
Identify sociological themes in the movie. Ask yourself in what ways the movie reflects the events and social reality of its time and in what ways it distorts them. Ask if the movie reflects on universal human concerns and problems and, if so, how. Ask how well the movie fits into sociological ideas and research, or if it contradicts them. Decide what it has to say, if anything, on the relationship between the individual, his society, and the flow of history. Jot down some notes.
Select observations that are surprising or startling. A sociological movie review that makes unexpected observations will be much more interesting than one that focuses on obvious things.
Develop a sociological argument. State what you believe the movie has to say sociologically, using evidence from the movie. Include events from the plot, descriptions of important scenes, and direct quotes from character dialogue to make your point. Don’t summarize the whole movie; rather, focus on the parts of it that are most important to your argument.
Write a conclusion, restating your main point and showing how it relates to a broader sociological perspective. You may wish to reflect on the movie’s continued relevance to current events, for example or, if it is no longer relevant to our culture, discuss what has changed.
Write an introduction. The introduction should provide a hook to bring the reader in and address the main point of the essay. Start by asking a question, discussing an important event in history, sharing a quote from the movie, or using another technique to get the reader to think about what issue your essay is addressing. Then, narrow down your introduction in a few sentences until you present your thesis: the main point your essay is making.
Reread your essay to make sure it has good grammar, spelling, and punctuation, and is well organized. Include a title, your name and the date you completed the review on a title page. If you are writing your review for a class, check it against the class rubric to make sure it fulfills all the requirements.
Add a works-cited page. Write down relevant information including title, director, studio and year of production of the version of the movie you watched, and citations for any books or articles you consulted.
