Question description

In the movie SLEEPERS, directed by Barry Levinson, four teenage boys are sent to a juvenile prison where they are brutalized sexually and physically. As adults, they all suffer the scars from the experience in one form or another.

Research how a violent childhood is a predictor of an adult being violent, and then discuss how that cycle can be changed along with possible treatment options. Relate your research to the characters in the movie, particularly the four boys and make sure you describe how the trauma affected each one of them. For instance, you should address topics such as violent behavior, drug and alcohol addiction, PTSD, and relationship disorders.

Use MLA format, and 12 pt Courier font. MLA citations are only needed for the how the cycle can be changed/treatment options portion.

Paragraph 1: Mention the movie, director, stars, and write a brief 2 sentence movie description. Thesis statement: "This paper will examine problems in light of this film."

Section 2: Synopsis of the film (basic key points) (must be 2 pages and a few paragraphs)

Section 3: Drug and alcohol addiction (first problem). Will they have problems with this issue? What happened in the film that relates to this issue? Treatment options? (cite only for treatment options).

Section 4: PTSD (second problem). Will they have problems with this issue? What happened in the film that relates to this issue? Treatment options? (cite only for treatment options).

Section 5: Violent behavior (third problem). Will they have problems with this issue? What happened in the film that relates to this issue? Treatment options? (cite only for treatment options).

Section 6: Relationship disorders (fourth problem). Will they have problems with this issue? What happened in the film that relates to this issue? Treatment options? (cite only for treatment options).

(Sections 3-6 should be a couple of pages)

Conclusion: Summarize essay.
