Ethical dilemmas are often portrayed in movies. The Ethical Dilemma Movie Writing Assignments require students to access a movie from the list for each assignment, and then write an analysis of the film identifying each character listed in the syllabus for that movie with one ethical system. Some characters may change ethical systems during the movie. Students must note when this occurs. Students must explain why they have associated a particular character with a/an ethical system(s). Do not lump all characters in one ethical system. Each character is to be analyzed separately and not collectively with one or more other characters at the same time. NOTE: DO NOT LUMP ALL CHARACTERS INTO ONE ETHICAL SYSTEM! Each character is to be analyzed separately and not collectively with one or more other characters at the same time.
