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 do you feel about the advice of some of the village elders who council the younger folk: “You’ll never find peace by hating, lad. It only shuts ye off more from the world,” and “It’s the hardest thing in the world to give everything. Though it’s usually the only way to get everything.”

Most of the residents of Brigadoon think of it as a “blessed place,” but one of the characters feels its strict boundaries make it a prison. How does our attitude affect the way we see the world? Why do Jeff and Tommy have such different reactions to their experience in the Highlands?
