GOVT - "The Conspirator" Extra Credit

Now that you have viewed the film The Conspirator, pretend you are a movie reviewer of the 19th century (you therefore must also pretend that movies exist in the 1800s as well J). Write a one-page, typed newspaper editorial from the point of view of:

Ø  a Northerner (if your last name is A-M)
Ø  a Southerner (if your last name is N-Z)

Explain, in your Northern or Southern point of view, how the film portrays our system of criminal justice in America.  Remember that you are writing a commentary on the film from a specific (Northern or Southern point of view) and not necessarily commenting on the facts of the case itself.  Use specific examples from various points in the film to support your argument.  This assignment is due by next Friday, December 2, 2011.
