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.

The lack of consequences in this film many provides starting points for many discussions, such as: What are the financial costs of street racing? (You may want to look at the price tags of the vehicles, the tires—thanks to the effect of “drifting”—and the property damage.) What other costs and risks are associated with this illegal form of entertainment? Are those who chose to race the only ones who may be affected by these dangers?

What does Sean learn from his experience in Japan? What do you think his future will hold?

How are women portrayed in this film? What stereotypes are used? What opportunities for decision-making or taking control of their destinies are the female characters given?
