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 are the challenges that seniors may face when it comes to financing their retirement? How do downturns in the economy affect many of those on a fixed income? What responsibility do children have to support their parents?

Who in this story embraced the new location? What did they do differently than those who did not adjust well? Why are people often enticed to believe a new relationship will be better than the one they are currently in?

How does regret play into the lives of many of these characters?
