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.

Although forgiveness is an important message in this film, do you believe Helen has truly changed her feelings for Charles in such a short space of time? Is seeking revenge part of being able to forgive someone?

In this film, some characters have to practice tough love. Is it sometimes difficult to let others face the consequences for their decisions? Why is change and redemption a personal pursuit?
