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.

Dianne Keaton’s character, Daphne, is anxious to have her youngest daughter find a man, yet she admits her marriage was terrible. Why do you think she is so motivated to bring a man into her daughter’s life? Is this inconsistent with her character and a flaw in the script?

How much input do you think parents should have in their child’s decision to marry? What are the pros and cons of giving children advice?
