|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.
How do Ben’s feelings about disappointing his father affect the way he treats his daughter? How does watching Cale pursue her dreams help to heal the strained relationship between father and son?
Dreamer is supposedly based on a true story. According to an article posted on news.yahoo.com, the inspiration for the movie was a horse named Mariah’s Storm, a two-year-old filly who broke her leg in 1992 but came back in 1994 to win four races and to finish ninth in the 1995 Breeder’s Cup Distaff. Why do you think the movie script differ from these facts?
