Contains 16 movie quotes & 42 Academic Words (AWL*).

In the world of stage magic, a mysterious entity known only as “The Eye” brings together four magicians who are later bankrolled by Insurance magnate, Arthur Tressler (Michael Caine).  The “Four Horsemen” then embark on three nights of magic that are sure to get the attention of the FBI, especially Agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) along with assistant Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent).  The Horsemen also get the attention of Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman).  He likes to follow magic acts and expose them as cheap entertainers.  As the story builds to its final showdown, we still don’t understand the mysterious connection between all these people. The answer may lie somewhere within The Eye.  Also stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco.   Rated PG-13 (115 min.) mike laib 2017.


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.
