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.

Jasmine accuses Ginger of settling for losers when it comes to her relationships. Should Ginger be content with the treatment she receives from Chili and Augie? How does Hal compare with the men Ginger chooses? What kind of man do you think would be good for Ginger? What about Jasmine?

Despite their similar upbringing, why is Ginger’s life so different from Jasmine’s? Which one of them seems more equipped to deal with life and its challenges? What makes one person more resilient than another?

How is Jasmine’s beauty both a curse and a blessing to her? How does her dependence on alcohol limit her ability to deal with life and move forward?

What does Chili learn about himself and his ability to control his temper? Do you think this understanding will have life changing implications for him, or do you suspect he will fall back into old habits?

This Movie is based on Tennessee Williams’ famous stage play, A Street Car Named Desire.
