Still shot from the movie: All the King’s Men.

All the King’s Men

A remake of a 1949 movie, All the King's Men stars Sean Penn as Willie Stark, a depression era politician whose campaign ambitions turn into a personal quest for power. A violent shooting makes it an unlikely pick for kids. It's also too long and too confusing -- likely because we can't understand half of what Sean Penn is saying in his Louisiana accent.

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.

How does Willie Stark’s choice of liquid refreshment change during the movie? Does that reflect his changing morals?

Is it hard to be the son or daughter of a famous person? Can it be difficult to live up to the achievements of others? What are the advantages of a well-known name?

Jake Burden is assigned to dig up some dirt on Judge Irwin. How does the revelations affect the judge, Jake and others? Do the disclosures negate the good things the judge has accomplished in life?
