Pick 5, each should have a separate paper.
Write a short written report on the ethical issues expressed in 5 of these films.
Limit the length to one and a half pages, double spaced. Try to pick out the most important ethical issues and explain how they are handled in the film. (Do not give simple plot conditions and character types—get to the heart of the ethical issues and how they are treated, that is, talk about the morality play that is being presented.)
