"Today we will be watching a movie based on a work by the great Spanish realist writer Benito Perez Galdos. The movie is called The Grandfather," I announced in class.
"Great!" the students responded. "What is the movie about?"
"It's about a grandfather," I explained authoritatively.
The students almost choked with laughter.
This does not bode well for the article I have started to work on and which will be based on this work of literature.
