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.

Tiffany’s jewelry store and Crackerjack’s popcorn both appear in this movie. How do these product placements contribute to the story?

If you had to fill a day with activities that you had never done before, what would they be?

Why does Holly refuse to name her cat? Why is she afraid of being caged by a man? Why does she consider love to be a cage? How is she trying to find acceptance? Is she succeeding? What is the long-term possibility of her achieving her goal to become part of the moneyed group?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is based on a novella written by Truman Capote.
