I am trying to select titles for a program that will supplement our
(introductory) British Cultural Studies module (weekly screening of 1
film throughout the term, i.e. 14 weeks/films; possibly more per week).
The students are M.A. (British Cultural Studies) students who have
ultra-traditional English Philology background (RRL = reading, 'riting
and linguistics). The selection I have compiled so far is limited by the
availability of the titles in our British Council Resource library, but
I could try and order tapes from the UK, possibly:
""Educating Rita", "Howards End", "Letter to Brezhnev", "Quadrophenia",
"Breaking Glass", "Room At the Top", "The Loneliness of the Long
Distance Runner","The Krays", "The Piano", "Trainspotting", "My
Beautiful Laundrette", "The Crying Game", "Fever Pitch", "The Full
Monty", "Pride and Prejudice" (as marketing heritage)
Any suggestions on- or off-list will be really very precious!
