Contains 19 movie quotes & 25 Academic Words (AWL*).
Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) is a family guy who would probably sell his mother for a few dollars, so he has no problem selling weapons to both sides of a tragic civil war in West Africa, or to anyone else who can pay him in hard cash for the tools of his evil trade. Based on actual events of the millennium, Lord of War tells the story of the world's most successful arms dealer, who, along with his brother Vitaly (Jared Leto) is chased halfway across the globe by INTERPOL, but never captured.  Like anyone who takes big chances, his luck must run out eventually.  With Ethan Hawke.

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.
5. Assessments are at http://www.moviesgrowenglish.com/Assessments.html.
