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.

If your family sees this movie, discuss the techniques the writer uses to make the audience sympathetic toward Memphis and his gang of has-been criminals.

What could Memphis have done instead of stealing the cars?

How does the ending of the movie try to justify the crimes committed? Do you think the ending is possible in reality?

What are some of the consequences of the thieves’ actions that are not included in the movie? Why do movies usually overlook the consequences of crime?

In hopes of helping you protect your car from being stolen (perhaps by ambitious audience members of this movie), the good people at Disney have a helpful list of ten things you can do to make your car less attractive to thieves. You can find the list at: http://studio.go.com/movies/goneinsixty/rides_f.html
