Because Of Winn Dixie

When Opal Buloni (Annasophia Robb) moves to Naomi, Florida, she asks God for two things: to find friends in her new home and to see her estranged Mama once again. Her prayer is answered in the form of a big, hairy, stinky dog -- who has a nose for finding lost souls and a heart for healing them. Get the movie review and more. »

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 does Gloria Dump encourage Opal to understand the importance of overlooking past mistakes? How does her insight make it easier for the young girl to accept some of the other people in her life?

What unique method does Miss Franny use to help Opal see the sorrow others carry inside? How does this affect the way Opal treats others?
