  34. 34. The target audience for a text will also shape its content. <br />audience = ‘who’ the text was created for.<br />

  47. 47. Film Review – writing features<br />Don’t give the ending away but offer some teaser information about the plot!<br />You should then comment on what you think were the good and bad elements of the film.<br />You might mention individual performances, the soundtrack, special effects, costuming, scenery etc.<br />You will then conclude by offering an overall judgement on the quality of the film – you may recommend it or warn people to avoid it like the plague!<br />
