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.

Why were Adrienne and Coco willing to continue to be mistresses even after they realized they would never be wives? Why does it appear to be socially acceptable to have a mistress during that time period?

What influences does Coco draw on for her fashion designs? How does she develop her skills?

Is it easier to become involved in a film’s story when the actors are less familiar? Why or why not?
