Product Description
The following two-page handout guides students easily and thoughtfully toward a close reading of this important film. Chaplin acts, directs, and composes music for this film and the results are what many consider to be one of the finest films ever made. After Chaplin visited the automaker Ford's facilities in Dearborn, Michigan, he had much to say about working in factories and the assembly lines that were populating them. He worried about the loss of humanity in the Age of the Machine. But this film goes beyond that. It is a love story. And it is a story of hope and resilience. You will need to get a copy of the film, but that is not difficult to do. My Drama students and English students see this film and analyze it every year.
