Hopefully you can understand psychology is a “hub” for a variety of disciplines. For your paper, you are to
connect what you have learned from this class and apply it to film. The purpose of the assignments is to
answer how films portray psychology, typically through characters suffering through a variety of situations.
Choose one of the following Netflix films to analyze:
The Grinch (2018) Animated Cartoon
Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018)
Dallas Byers Club (2013)
The Irishman (2019)
Ex Machine (2015)
Everybody Knows (2019) – Spanish Film, can be viewed using English CC.
A Secret Love (2020) Documentary
Some films may have some violent/sex scenes. Please review the film before watching. If you the film is not for you, then please choose another
After viewing your chosen film, you are to analyze the film through a psychological lens. You may use any
perspective, concept, or theory we have examined this semester. For example, you could easily discuss social
psychological (stereotypes, discrimination, prejudice) concepts in Dallas Byers Club (2013). You could discuss
defense mechanisms in Her (2013). You can discuss self-esteem and self-comparison, or stages of human
development in The Grinch (2018). You may simply choose a character in the film and complete a character
analysis. You may also do the same analysis for a scene. Again, you decide. You have the freedom to
construct this analysis as you like.
To make your analysis stronger, you are to find scholarly research articles that will reinforce what you are
writing. You need to make sure you cite as appropriate. You may utilize your online textbook, online journal
articles, or any other type of credible sources as your reference. Visit
