This helpful collection of movie summaries grants limited English speakers access to popular movies. Besides the summaries, which are available in PDF, Microsoft Word, and html, there are hints for teachers on how to use movies in the classroom, hints for the student on how to watch movies that are often full of fast talk and slang, and an overall explanation of the best way to utilize the movie guides. The glossary includes not only difficult vocabulary but also explanations of cultural, historical, and idiomatic references that will add to student comprehension and enjoyment of the movies.
