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.

Considering the way Frank treats Rod, is it believable that Rod would want to have a relationship with him? What kind of relationship does Rod have with his stepbrother, Kevin? What challenges do blended families often face?

What truths about his biological father did Rod’s mother hide from him? What were her reasons for doing so?
