Certainly, the best film I have ever seen was the classic Gone with the Wind. The film, based on a book written by Margaret Mitchell, tells the story of a spoiled and determinated young lady, Scarlett O'Hara. Gd

A very good attempt at this question, Clarice! You have answered the question, giving a brief description and explaining why you felt it was such a good film. You used several words and expressions appropriate for an article about films such as 'classic', 'setting' and 'context'. You also used the present tense well to give a sense of immediacy to your writing. You should pay attention to your spelling, however, and make a note of the corrections above. Thanks for sharing this with us, and I agree, it was a great film!
