ENG 225 Week 2 Assignment Genres and Genre Film
Genres and Genre Film. After reviewing the discussion of genre in Chapter 8 of Film: From Watching to Seeing, demonstrate your understanding of one selected genre using a feature-length film.
Note: Several films are listed in Chapter 8 as emblematic of a specific genre. You are allowed to choose a film or genre not mentioned in Chapter 8, but you are strongly encouraged to email your professor to receive approval before doing so.
In 800 to 1200 words:
 Explain genre theory and, using Chapter 8 of the text as a reference, thoroughly describe the conventions
and attributes of your selected genre.
 Identify a feature-length film that fits this genre and provide a basic summary of the movie. As you
develop this summary, remember the differences between a film’s story and a film’s plot and how these
differences can lead to the inclusion of genre elements.
 Interpret at least two genre conventions exhibited in your chosen feature-length film that help classify it in
the selected genre. Be sure to provide a specific example of each convention (e.g., a particular scene or
plot component).
 Provide an example of a third convention from your chosen feature-length film and explain how this
convention expands the boundaries of the specified genre.
Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement that focuses on how your chosen feature-length film both aligns with and expands upon your chosen genre.
1. The paper must be 800 to 1200 words in length (excluding title and reference pages), and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. You must use at least two scholarly sources other than the textbook to support your claims. Cite your sources (including the feature-length film)...
