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 does Marie’s boyfriend and coworker (Thierry Neuvic) appear to be uncomfortable about her interest in the afterlife? Why do the book publishers seem to have the same reactions? Why is death often an uncomfortable subject to approach?

How are psychics portrayed in this film? Do you believe in their abilities? Why do people often employ them?

George believes that it is often better to hold some things back in a relationship. Why does he feel that way? With his abilities, could he ever have such an association with another person? What kinds of things would you want to know about someone before becoming involved with him or her?
