Hi Everyone, Select one of the topics for your discussion. Acting -Highlight and explain the use of acting in the movies assigned for this week. The first movie I selected is Godfather. It seemed so real and definitely made for a very believable family, and other families as well, back from the 1940’s up until the 1970’s, at least. Isn’t acting making characters look and act so real that you think they are not even acting?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
