Moon Writing Prompts

Film response option:

Creative option:
Write a conversation between the Sam Bell clone on the moon and the original Sam Bell on
earth. Or write a continuation of the conversation the Sam Bell clone had with his daughter on

Argumentative option:
At the end of the movie a voice, presumably a radio or tv host, says Sam Bell is either a liar or
an illegal immigrant and he should be locked up. It may be inferred that people don’t want to
hear the truth and that we are willing to sacrifice people if the rewards are great enough. Would
the rewards of clean energy be worth the unethical treatment of a few clones? What if there was
no other way? Make your case.
