Specific film guide analyzes the content, characters, and themes of Almodóvar's acclaimed "Volver". Students enjoy watching the Spanish movie, noting nuanced cultural differences, expressing opinions, and writing exclusively in Spanish. Film guide is submitted for a grade and/or used as a reference during our discussion post-film; we further consider gender roles, familial relationships, stereotypes, customs and traditions, exaggerations/representations of Spain, etc. I show this film to 11th and 12th grades due to mature and polemic content. This resource provides a memorable experience and appropriate introduction to Almodovar's style.
