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.

Rose feeds her emotional hunger by buying (but never wearing) numerous pairs of shoes. What other means do people use to satiate unmet needs? Why is giving up addictions like overeating, out-of-control shopping, drug and alcohol use, gambling etc. often much more complicated than simply walking away from the vice?

How do the senior citizens in this film positively interact with one another as well as younger generations? What effect can grandparents have on children that parents can’t?

Weddings can often be a catalyst for familial tensions. What affect does the stepmother’s actions have at the bridal shower? How does Ella’s behavior differ at the wedding? What role does forgiveness and understanding play in changing family dynamics?
