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.

Why are the police suspicious of Jill’s story? How does the stigma of mental illness affect their view of Jill?

Is Jill’s self-induced isolation from others understandable following her alleged kidnapping? Does that contribute to the misgivings she has about others? Do her solitary walks in the forest make sense considering her experience? Can a lack of interaction with others in our neighborhoods and communities make us more fearful?

How does the film justify Jill’s decision to take the law into her own hands?

Could a film like this discourage people from participating in outdoor activities in the forest? What are reasonable precautions to take? Why is Molly angry that Jill went to the forest alone?
