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.

What does Katey do in this movie that could put her in danger? What could she have done to avoid these risks?

Sometimes movie characters do things that are not consistent with who we are told they are. What are we lead to believe about Katey’s personality at the start of the film? Considering the story covers less than two months, do you think the changes she underwent happened too quickly to be believable?

While trying to accept the physical interaction of Javier’s dancing, a character in the movie tells Katey, 0x201CIt’s as scary as **** to let another person touch that part of you.
