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.

What role does the garden play in Gerri and Tom’s life? What significance does it have in the storyline?

What kind of man does Mary want? What do her clothes and actions suggest she is looking for? Why is there a discrepancy between her desires and her appearance?

What would have to happen in order for many of the people in this film to be happy? Is happiness something that is earned? Why do some people seem to prefer to be discontent rather than make changes that would improve their lives?
