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.

A character in this film decides it is better to harm others than let someone he loves get hurt. When are we justified in using force to protect others? How do “bullies” sometimes use tactics to convince us others will be harmed if we don’t do what they ask?

Characters in this film wrestle with the obligation to use their power for good knowing it will attract publicity versus the temptation to go into hiding so they can live “normal” lives. In reality, what types of people attract most of the media’s attention? Are they usually doing things that will better our society?
