Student must watch the movie before class. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
Students will need to rent and/or stream movies before the class. Most movies should be available to rent on Amazon Prime, Vudu, and/or iTunes, and may be available on membership sites like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Showtime, HBO, etc. Some movies are only available on a particular streamer (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime), if that is the case, it will be noted in the description which streamer you need to subscribe to for that month.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No grades. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please note that many of the movies watched in this course are PG-13, TV-14, and R. If you are concerned about your child watching PG-13, TV -14, or R rated movies, you can watch the movie trailer, check the synopsis on Wikipedia, and go to Common Sense Media to see what might be in the movie that could be concerning for your child. If you are uncomfortable with your child watching a particular movie, you can skip that week and rejoin. 

Our discussions will be focused on performances, story structure, dialogue, and filmmaking techniques. Occasionally, sensitive topics might come up if the movie addresses them. We will have constructive discussions around these sensitive topics about how these topics affected the movie and how movie making has changed (how it addresses sensitive topics throughout the decades). 
We will use Julie Faulkner's Movie Analysis Worksheets to help organize our thoughts and understanding.
