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 are parent/child relationships portrayed in this film? What deception do the parents practice? How does that affect their children?

How does this script portray the afterlife? How does the world of the dead compare with that of the living? Do you believe there is another world where happy reunions will occur?

What do Emily and Victor learn about sacrifice?
