Rockwell), are “Matchstick Men,” the topic of this Ridley Scott-directed movie.  A word of caution:  all is seldom as it seems in the dangerous world of the confidence game. Rated PG-13 (116 min.)  mike laib 2010.


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.
