Still shot from the movie: Definitely, Maybe.

Definitely, Maybe

Will Hayes (Ryan Reynolds) is a dad with some tough questions to answer. In order to help his daughter Maya (Abigail Breslin) understand why he is getting a divorce, he definitely needs to tell the precocious ten-year-old all about his life and former loves (Elizabeth Banks, Isla Fisher and Rachel Weisz). And maybe her youthful, uncluttered vision can help him see some solutions to his adult problems. 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.

Despite the fact that her parents are breaking up, Maya appears to be more concerned with her father’s happiness. What is she learning about long-term relationships? In what ways is she playing the parent role for her dad? How do you think she feels about her mom’s happiness?

Does Will divulge too many details about his former relationships? Is there a limit to what parents should tell their children about their past? When can it be helpful and harmful to share that information?
