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.

Who mentors young Francis when he takes up the game of golf? What role can a mentor play in the life of a young person? Is it important for athletes, artists and others to have role models to follow?

Why does Francis’ father discourage his son’s dream? As an immigrant to America, what role does the father feel locked into?

Some sports are more exclusive than others. Does golf still fit into this category? What barriers do these characters have to overcome?
