Still shot from the movie: The Holiday.

The Holiday

Although they live on opposite sides of the globe, Amanda (Cameron Diaz) and Iris (Kate Winslet) have had equally disappointing experiences with men. Accidentally finding each other over the Internet on a home exchange site, the two agree to swap residences for the Christmas Holidays. But the change of address also causes a change of heart when the women meet new love interests (played by Jude Law and Jack Black). Get the movie review and more. »

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.

How does the script use Amada’s works as a producer of movie trailers to summarizes how she views her life? How can a person’s profession affect their personal perspective?

As a third party watching Iris’s romance, it is obvious the man of her affection is using her. What methods does Jasper employ to manipulate Iris? Why is she so willing to let him?
