IELTS Writing Task 2 – Movies and Influence

How do movies influence people’s behavior?

(310 Words, 23 Sentences, 4 Paragraphs, Band 9)

I believe that television and especially movies are one of the major and outstanding achievements of humankind. I like movies. They help you leave your troubles behind, relax and enjoy your life. I must confess that most of all I like comedies and historical films. Comedies make me laugh and if I am not in a good mood they help me to cheer up. As for historical movies because it is interesting to find out more about some historical events.

Every movie makes an impression on people. How big this impression depends on a person, his characteristic features, his weak and strong sides. For instance, my sister likes serial “Friends” and she is a fan of “Chandler”. I can not say she looks like him after all she is female but they have a lot in common. She is smart and resilient. She makes faces just like he does. She has a similar sense of humor and she tries to imitate his habits. It is like she has a very close friend who is on the other side of the screen.

As far as I am concerned, I am terribly afraid of dark. Last time my husband and I were watching a scary film called “Spiders”. It is a horror movie with the large spiders creeping around and killing people in the dark. The only light in our apartment was the dim light of the TV screen. So when the movie was over I could not fall asleep. I heard rustling of dry leaf and it seemed to me that millions of spiders were crawling towards my bed. I felt tingles down my spine. For several days I was afraid of every shadow and every rustle reminded me of that disgusting noise.

In conclusion I want to point that movies have great influence on people’s behavior and it is not always positive.
