2. Write a 6 page paper (not including a cover page) about the movie. First, summarize the movie (this section should be about one page). Next, identify and discuss at least five principles in the movie that are included in social psychology, such as prejudices, schemas, research methods, cognitive dissonance, cultural/self identity, conformity, etc. Make sure that you correctly describe the principle and thoroughly discuss how the principle is in action in the movie.
