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?
