Locate a copy of the film on a streaming service or elsewhere and watch it.
Analyze the film as based on Homer’s Odyssey. The following are talking points – analyze the film and epic as you wish. Be sure to make an argument and support it with quotes, examples, and analysis. How does the movie portray key episodes from the poem (Calypso, Phaeacians, Suitors, Lotus Eaters, the Underworld, Cattle of the Sun, Cyclops, Circe, Aeolus,)? How does the movie deal with key themes from the epic (hospitality, singers, trickery, the belly, recklessness, the returns)? If scenes in the movie represent multiple scenes in the epic, then explain how. Where are the gods in the movie and how do they control the characters?
Do not try and answer all these questions – they are only beginning thoughts and suggestions. If you choose to work with the above points, then pick one or two and write in detail about it. Stay away from too much plot summary.
Answer the question in one to one and a half pages. Answers must be in your own words. Write answers in plain and concise language. Avoid overly fluid or overly technical writing styles. If sources are used for the answer, then show where and how you used them in the answer along with the works cited page. If you use sources, only use high-quality sources. The essay will be checked for plagiarism and for any use of AI.
