Answer the following questions in a minimum of 2 full pages (maximum of 5) using complete sentences in essay form. Give explanations WITH EXAMPLES to help describe all details.

DO NOT PROVIDE A SUMMARY OF THE STORY, WE’VE ALREADY SEEN IT. DO NOT REVIEW THE FILM. Time spent summarizing the plot of the movie will not help your grade. Instead, please respond to ALL the following questions in the form of an essay. (A simple way to do this is to make each set of questions, below, its own paragraph. Please don’t include the question numbers in your paper.)

1. First, explain the difference between story and plot as it relates to film. Then, explain the difference between the film’s story and it’s plot. Consider which events and elements of that story are explicitly presented in the film’s plot.

2. What narrative techniques did the filmmakers use to tell its story? Are the plot events presented in chronological order? What is the significance of the order of plot events in the film? Does the film use narration?

3. Who is the film’s protagonist? Who are the major characters? Can you characterize each of them according to their depth (round characters versus flat) and motivation? Who or what is the antagonist?
