Film Essay – Curly Sue

For this Video Essay Assignment you had to select several scenes from your favorite film (or one of your favorites), and edit them together and comment on some of the filmic elements of the scenes? Why do you like these scenes? What strikes you about them? What makes them good cinema? Is there a subtext at work in this film? In short, construct an essayistic commentary on the scenes as a narrator explaining to your audience what you find important about the scene, and why. What’s more, what do the details you have pinpointed say about the film more generally.

I chose this movie because it is one of my favorites and the concept of it is very sweet and hart warming. What i saw as the directors vision behind this movie was that unconventional families are more common than we think, and that it doesn’t matter what background or class you come from love is love.
