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 Tommy and Izzie face the reality of death? How do their differing perspectives affect their actions? What does Tommy mean when he says “death is a disease”?

According to the film, consuming the sap from the Tree of Life will make a person immortal. Would you want to live forever? What would be the advantages and the drawbacks? What age would you want to be if you lived forever? What other religious teachings, legends or stories deal with the concept of living forever?
