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.

Does Linda Porter’s loyalty to her husband show unconditional love, or merely facilitate his infidelity? How would you describe his feelings for her?

When Linda is forced to pay money to keep Cole’s indiscretions private, she sees it as black mail. Cole, on the other hand considers it a luxury tax. What do their varying perspectives tell us about them? How is it possible for two individuals see the same situation entirely differently?
