Susie goes to her locker after film club, where the students just watched William Shakespeare's Othello. Ray Singh, her British crush, approaches her and asks her what she thought about the Moor. Although Susie made fun of the character before, she sees that Ray is a fan and calls the movie "amazing."
Ray is a dark-skinned boy, who refers to himself as the Moor from Shakespeare's play. He is even dressed in black in the movie. With Peter Jackson directing the film, this is no coincidence. Have you read Othello? Can you spot any other similarities?
