Still shot from the movie: Eragon.


When young Eragon (Edward Speleers) stumbles upon a strange, blue stone, he has no idea the discovery will change his fate from humble farm boy to chosen liberator of his oppressed countrymen. This medieval tale of warriors and dragons is low on language and sexual content, but depicts a lot of violent action as the hero learns the skills and self-control necessary to battle the forces of sorcery and evil.

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.

Brom says, “Death is nothing to celebrate.” Why does he still value life despite the warfare that has consumed the country?

Although we never know why Eragon is abandoned by his mother, how does her disappearance affect the boy? What kind of compassion does it engender in him? How does it shape his self-image?

What does Murtagh (Garrett Hedlund) mean when he says he did not choose his father? What impact do parents’ choices or actions, whether good or bad, have on their child’s future? How can a person overcome his or her family history and establish his or her own identity?
