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 can adults prepare for old age? What kind of health problems, financial concerns and family issues should people plan for? How does the caregiver role change for Anne and Georges?

Does Anne’s condition justify Georges’ actions? What alternatives could he have considered? What role do children have in caring for their parents? What could Eva have done to support her parents?
