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.

Lucille and Peiro have differing religious perspectives as they labor in “God’s untidy world.” Why do trials draw some people closer to God, while others are driven further away?
