Question description

  • Film Argument Essay--an Overview

    This week you will develop a 750-1250-word argument research paper based on the film assigned to your group, and for which you have been doing various activities, such as engaging in a discussion and developing an annotated bibliography. Your goal is to develop an argument thesis that identifies with specific elements (characters, plot, and / or setting) of the film that reflect the achievement of the American Dream  OR disillusionment with the American Dream. For this essay, you will be using at least 4 to 6 research sources.  Follow these criteria in developing your essay: 


    • A good introduction relevant to the subject and your film

    • Awell-developed argument thesis


    • Develop well-argued body paragraphs that contain topic sentences which refer back to the thesis and provide supporting details from the film and your analyses. Well-argued body paragraphs focused on clear main ideas.  Each main idea must: be introduced with a topic sentence, include critical analysis supported with clear and specific examples (reference to scenes) from the film, be further supported with critical and scholarly sources and conclude by showing its relation to the thesis.

    • Use the film and your scholarly research as resources to develop your argument. You may use sources that you have researched, and/or you may use resources identified by your peers.

    • Use a strong organizational structure with clear transitional sentences


    • Write a conclusion that reemphasized the thesis statement


    • An MLA formatted works cited page with 4-6 sources of relevant scholarly research. 

    • Inclusion of properly formatted in-text citations for all sources used in the essay (using the MLA parenthetical form of citations).


    • Create your film argument essay on the film assigned to your group. Your essay must have a strong argument thesis that asserts the connections between the American Dream theme and the film. Essay must use correct formatting according to MLA in terms of spacing, heading, font, indenting, in-text citation, works cited, etc. For help with how to formulate an argument or correct formatting see Argument in the Unit/General Resources tab at left.
