How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Alfie’s philosophy of looking out for himself first, is intended to keep him from feeling any disappointment or sorrow. Why does his behavior have the entirely opposite effect? How do his selfish choices impact others? Is it really possible to make decisions that won’t hurt anyone but yourself?

The abortionist asks Alfie and the married woman he has gotten pregnant if they have considered their decision carefully, because once the procedure has been performed there is no way to change their minds. Was this really the only solution to their problematic situation? If they do manage to avoid the embarrassment and humiliation of their circumstances, will they be able to remove all the consequences of this guilty secret?
