Country Strong

Kelly Canter's (Gweneth Paltrow) career as a country singer is on the rocks, and even rehab doesn’t appear to be enough to save it. Nor do things improve when her husband/manager (Tim McGraw) tries to introduce some new talent (played by Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester) into the mix. Get the movie review and more. »

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.

What are the personal costs of becoming a performer? What stresses does a singer face that the average fan does not?

What challenges may cause people to turn to drugs or alcohol for relief? Does fame make it easier to access or justify the use of these substances? How difficult do you think it is to avoid these when you are involved in an on-stage lifestyle?

What are the benefits of rehabilitation clinics? Considering the success (or failure) of some stars that have recently used these facilities, do you think they are worthwhile? What makes a person more likely to successfully change?
