Senior year, French 4

From what I watched of it, the movie was the Mr. and Mrs. Smith of the 18th century with pompous British accents and Gandalf.

What I learned: How to talk like a British William Shatner.

Senior year, Psychology AP

A fun comedy, one of my teacher's favorite movies, and a way to relax right after our AP.

What I learned: Freudian slips--when you say one thing but mean your mother.

Senior year, French 4

Hilarious comedy about a post office manager who is transferred to THE NORTH--a place of isolation, vulgarity, drinking, and weird accents. A great way to learn about places in France other than Paris.

What I learned: Stereotypes are a-okay as long as it pleases your boss.

Dustin Hoffman in this classic play by Arthur Miller. It was a wonderful movie, and definitely worth watching.

What I learned: Salesmen lead tragic, dramatic lives which can entertain an entire 12 AP class.

Othello (1995)
Senior year, 12 AP

We only saw a few clips of the ending in class, but it's worth mentioning. I watched the entire movie afterwards. Morpheus does a damn good job playing Othello.

Best. Tragedy. Ever.

What I learned: Monologuing makes you look badass.

A musical about a romance in Cherbourg. It's hard to describe unless you've seen it, but I loved this movie. There's a magical appeal to the setting, and the colors are absolutely breathtaking.

What I learned: Marry the rich guy who's in love with you, even though you're pregnant with someone else's kid.

Great list! By the way, how is your French?

And comin back to 'Frost/Nixon', David Frost was NOT a political figure but just a TV host.
