Product Description
Frozen in time and space, the flawed hero contemplates the meaning of redemption, respect for life and love, piano lessons, theft from an armored car and binge eating? Groundhog Day, the 1993 film starring Bill Murray, is both educational and hilarious. This written exercise ties plot elements and the theme of this 20th Century film classic to ancient themes in European literature.

The two-page download provides plot summaries of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and The Flying Dutchman, by Richard Wagner. Students complete a table comparing and contrasting elements and themes from these older stories with those of the modern film. Additional questions promote discussion or can serve as writing prompts.
