Minority Report. Included in this unit are the following: 1. A multiple choice quiz with six questions; the answers are included. 2. Three discussion questions (each with at least two sub-questions); each question uses a quotation from the film (and the quiz) and asks the student to explain the quotation. For instance, one of the quotations speaks about the Precogs never being wrong but occasionally disagreeing. $1.25 This is an excellent film for discussing the nature of TRUTH and JUSTICE.
