Dark Water

Wading through a bitter custody battle, Dahlia (Jennifer Connelly) moves herself and young daughter (Ariel Gade) into a rundown housing project on New York City's Roosevelt Island. However, the supposedly safe harbor turns out to be flooded with a whole new set of problems -- ones that rain down on the struggling divorcee and threaten to wash away her mores of sanity.

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.

Dahlia helps Ceci prepare for her first day at the new school by practicing how she will introduce herself to the class. How can rehearsing an activity assist a person in overcoming first-time jitters?

What childhood traumas color Dahlia’s actions as a mother? How can past experiences affect the way people parent their own children?
