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 filmmakers depict Benjamin’s youthfulness even when he is an old man? How does his character change over time?

What impact does Queenie have on those that she cares for? How does her attitude influence Benjamin’s feelings about his own life experience?
