|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 behaviors does Saul exhibit that shows he is trying to keep control of his family. What are his motivations for doing these things? Do you think he loves his wife and children? Why is it a temptation for parents to always have “all the answers?”
Early in the film, Saul explains to his university class that our job (meaning those of us on Earth) is to put the pieces of life together. How does Saul use his religion everyday? Is he open to new ideas and thoughts? What does his reaction toward his son reveal? Why do you think Aaron sought after a different religion?
This film uses many visual metaphors based on glass, light, and being able to see through things. How are these elements are used in the story? How does the Naumann family become broken apart? What might be able to put them back together?
