It’s World War II.  Rick Blaine owns a nightclub in Casablanca. Like others, he came here to escape the war and his past.  Everything changes when Ilsa, his Paris sweetheart, re-enters his life, but with a new love interest, Victor Lazlo, a heroic freedom fighter who represents everything Rick ran away from.  With stolen letters of transit, Rick might be able to convince Ilsa to leave Victor and escape Casablanca with him.  But in this classic and much-quoted tale of romance and war, nothing happens as planned (Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Peter Lorre, Claude Raines).  Academy Award: Best Picture, Director, Screenplay.   Rated PG (102 min.)  mike laib 2011

Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.
2. Within the lesson, decide which quotes, questions, and vocabulary to focus on. Highlight or cut-and-paste content you plan to use.
3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
