Movie Discussion – U-571


Here and here

The Questions:

Level One (Observation)

What was your favorite moment of the film?

When was the film the most intense or darkest?

Remember that this film is a fictional account of the heroes of WW2, for example the British captured the Enigma code device long before America joined the war. But what can you learn historically from a movie like this?

Level Two (Abstraction)

What do you make of this quote: “You’re the skipper now and the skipper always knows what to do whether he does or not.”?

How is ‘fear’ portrayed and dealt with by the characters?

Level Three (Personalization)

Was gaining the Enigma code machine (in the movie) worth it? Why?

Is true leadership defined by the subordinates, hard choices, or what? Did any of the characters show ‘true’ leadership then?
