Hello Class,
As we got through our first week, I realized for all of us, to try to schedule time to watch films became difficult. The focus of this class is to understand why it’s important to have filmmakers with different points of view. Often times we are looking at big events but the really big events happen with families.
As we look at Cinema’s affect on a diverse society, let’s take a closer look at the ‘Mother/Daughter’ dynamic in cinema.
Your Assignment:
Part 1
Screen LOVE & BASKETBALL by Gina Prince-Blythewood. There are three distinctive plots happening in the film film; Monica/Quincy, Monica’s personal struggle, and Monica/Mother.
Take the Mother/Daughter conflict at look at the time period in history, (1990s) and answer these questions in a short essay.
1) What ideas and themes being brought up in LOVE & BASKETBALL are still at the forefront of news and information for women today and are these issues changing for better or worse?
Going into the Thanksgiving holiday, watch two beautiful films with someone you care about; IMITATION OF LIFE (1934) and the remake, IMITATION OF LIFE (1958)
Both films are Academy Award Winners but only one is cowritten by Preston Sturges, a forward thinking filmmaker who took the “n-word” (which appeared in Fannie Hurst’s novel of the same name) out of the film and replaced it with “black”. The writers of the 1958 version put the word back in, several times over. I am also adding his film about a widowed father raising two teen daughters called, THE MIRACLE OF MORGAN’S CREEK.
I had already listed SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS by Sturges in the syllabus but I want to add MOMC. Trust me, you will enjoy all of these family films and better understand cinematic storytelling and the evolution of the female voice on screen with the help of this male director, Sturges.
Answer the following question choosing information from all of the films you screened?
Did the director use mirrors or reflections of main characters? If so, did that character have secrets they were trying to hide?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
