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?
