Movie: IELTS Speaking Part 2 Questions & Sample Answers

Describe a movie that you enjoyed watching.

You should say:

  • what the movie is
  • when and where you watched it
  • why you enjoyed watching it

and explain what made this movie memorable or special to you.

Sample Answer:

I found “The Shawshank Redemption” to be an incredibly enjoyable movie. I watched it a few years ago at home on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It was the captivating storyline and the outstanding performances by actors like Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman that made it so memorable for me. This film revolves around the character of Andy Dufresne, a banker who is unjustly imprisoned for murder. The movie beautifully portrays Andy’s resilience and determination as he navigates the harsh realities of life behind bars. Moreover, the strong friendship between Andy and Red adds depth to the story. However, what truly stood out to me was the movie’s powerful message of hope and the invincible human spirit. Overall, “The Shawshank Redemption” is a highly recommended film that combines a compelling narrative, exceptional acting, and an inspiring theme.

Describe a movie that you think everyone should watch.

You should say:

  • what the movie is
  • what makes it special or important
  • why you believe it is worth watching by everyone

and explain how this movie has the power to resonate with a wide audience and leave a lasting impact.

Sample Answer:

One movie that I would recommend for everyone to watch is “Forrest Gump.” It is a movie about the life of Forrest Gump, a kind-hearted and simple-minded man who witnesses and becomes a part of significant events in American history. “Forrest Gump” is special and important because it is a heartwarming and inspiring story that teaches valuable lessons about embracing life’s challenges with optimism and kindness. I believe “Forrest Gump” is worth watching by everyone because it has a universal appeal and can resonate with people from all walks of life. It explores universal themes of hope, friendship, and the triumph of the human spirit. “Forrest Gump” is a cinematic masterpiece that impacts everyone who watches it.
