    My daughter has to write a film review for one of her GCSE english controlled assessment tasks. She does not seem to have had any help in how to structure this or what to include. can anybody recommend any sites where it is possible to look at some examples. Also is she expected to include film shots, camera angles etc. She seems to think that it is just like writing a book review and a rather simple one at that. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in anticipation of your help.

    Are you sure that she hasn't been shown any examples of film reviews? If not, there are plenty in magazines like Empire and online.
    She should have been given a task title and shown a mark scheme. If you know which board, you could look online for a markscheme in the specification. It sounds like the AQA Creative Writing task (http://www.aqa.org.uk/resource-zone/english/english-language.php). If it is, there's no requirement to analyse (write about camera angles etc) but you need to know what the task is.
