Length: 1.5-2 pages (not to exceed 2 pages)
Peer Review: 11/3 in class
Final Essay: 11/8 by 11:55 p.m.
Rhetorical situation:
You have just been selected to sit on Loyola’s Film Committee. The committee’s first duty is to nominate films that should appear on the “must-see” list for the academic year 2023-24. The committee is asking each member to submit a film nomination and argument to support the selection. Members of the committee will view each nomination and consider arguments before voting on films that should be on the list. Finally, these films will be shown as part of a film festival during fall semester.

Also, see Chapter 17 in Everything’s an Argument on how to write “criteria of evaluation” as support for your claim of value.
Topic 1
Films: A Star Is Born (2018) *required
A Star Is Born (1976) *required
One (1) additional film review *required
Develop a comparative analysis based on the latest adaptation of A Star Is Born (2018) directed by Bradley Cooper. Compare this film to the 1976 version of the same title directed by Frank Pierson, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. Comparison, for this assignment, is a rhetorical strategy to be used to help convince the University Committee and other readers that the latest version of this film is successful enough to make the list. The focus of this assignment is to develop an argument that persuades committee members that the 2018 film should be included on its list. Your essay should convince the committee, as well as others who have viewed the films, that your judgment is well-reasoned and worth serious consideration.
Explicitly state your thesis about the film’s success in the introduction of your paper, and establish clear elements that will be compared/contrasted, i.e., character(s), actors, music, costumes, and so on. Don’t be too ambitious. Choose 2-3 elements to discuss thoroughly. Keep in mind that while this essay will, by necessity, discuss plot elements of the film, at no point should your piece be just summary. You must move beyond merely retelling the film story to addressing elements of the film that you determine contribute to its success. Remember that the success of an adaptation is not in its similarity (or difference from) the original, but in its ability to convey the theme and tone.
A successful paper must draw upon at least one film review (and optional other secondary sources about the film or film artists). Use New York Times Film Reviews or IMDb.com for authoritative sources. Be sure to list all sources, including the film, on a Works Cited page.
*Also required “Focus Your Response” and “Building Credibility” lists below
OR
Topic 2
West Side Story (2021) *required
West Side Story (1961) *required
One additional film review *required
Develop a comparative analysis based on the latest adaptation of West Side Story (2021) directed by Steven Spielberg. Compare this film to the 1961 version of the same title directed by Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise, starring Natalie Wood. Comparison, for this assignment, is a rhetorical strategy to be used to help convince the University Committee and other readers that the latest version of this film is successful enough to make the list. The focus of this assignment is to develop an argument that persuades committee members that the 2021 film should be included on its list. Your essay should convince the committee, as well as others who have viewed the films, that your judgment is well-reasoned and worth serious consideration.

*Focus Your Response (required for the film you choose)
When writing about the success of the film, you must discuss at least two (2) of the following:
Discuss one or more of the director’s decisions(s) about the screen story. Point out any key elements that you regard as effective.
Discuss one of the major actors and his/her portrayal of a character in the film. For West Side Story, you must include a discussion of casting.
Discuss the music artists responsible (not just the actors) for the music in the film and evaluate the music choices.
Discuss dance and chorography in the movie.
Explain why this film story continues to attract audiences. What is its appeal?

FAQ

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.
