Friday Task: Film Review –

Either watch a film that you haven’t watched before, or use a film that you have seen before.

Pretend you’re a film critic finding films for other people to watch whilst they are self-isolating at home.

Write a film review for that film, making it an interesting read!

‘best/worst bits’ etc.

Have a go at the question sheet, and then have a go at writing your own examples that could be used in your Jane Goodall biography tomorrow (at least X4 of your own examples).
