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 might Kate’s heavy career commitments impact her role as a mother? What are the difficulties of balancing work and home responsibilities? Are the challenges of parenting and single parenting addressed in this script?
What ethical issues might arise from some of the procedures used in this film? Does a sperm donor have any responsibility to the children he fathers? Should a child be able to contact a sperm donor? What difficulties might arise from surrogacy? What happens if a child is born with birth defects? What would motivate a woman to be a surrogate? Do you agree or disagree with the practice? Why?
