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.

Do you think fathers have the same kind of bond with their children as mothers? Would it be easier for a father to forget his child than a mother? What does this film’s ending say about the bonding process between a mother and child?

In this film, how did the parents deal differently with their grief?

What part do memories play in our life? How does a person change when certain memories are lost through injury or disease? Can fictional memories be created in a person’s mind?
