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.

Following Johnny’s death, each of the family members grieves in a different way. How does Bryan deal with the loss of his son and his own hopes for his son’s success? What effect does it have on his parental involvement with the other children? How does Lindsay respond to the tragedy? What are the consequences for Gracie?

How does Bryan perceive his daughter? In what way does Johnny’s death eventually change Bryan’s view of Gracie? Do you think that would have happened without the accident?

What part does natural talent versus desire play in athletic, academic or musical ventures?
