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.

If any of your children have seen this movie, be aware that sexual behaviors (at times with nudity) and values portrayed may not meet your family’s standards and expectations. Topics of discussion you may want to consider would include your feelings about sex outside of marriage, the idea of using sex as a recreational diversion, and the effects of alcohol on our abilities to make important decisions. You may also want to talk about masturbation, oral sex, and the use of other objects to create sexual pleasure. All these topics (and more) are explored in this film.
