Analyzing Cinematic Satire Elements

Stereotypical Characters

Work Time

Consider what’s been shared about the stereotypical characters and discuss the following.

  • What details did you miss?
  • Which character do you find most sympathetic? Least sympathetic?
  • What point is the writer making from what you see here?
  • What details make these characters more like caricatures than real people? Are there some who are more obviously exaggerated than others?
  • How do these caricatures add to the satire?
