Still shot from the movie: Inkheart.

Inkheart

Although Meggie (Eliza Hope Bennett) and her father Mo (Brendan Fraser) love books, he never reads them aloud. That's because the voice of the man with the silver tongue can bring objects and people from the story pages to life. Unfortunately, every time something or someone enters their reality, another disappears into the world of the novel. But Mo may be forced to use his unique talent when Meggie is kidnapped by some unsavory characters that escaped from a book called Inkheart. 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.

Mo tells his daughter that the written word is a powerful thing. Why does he warn her to be careful with it? What effect can literature have on a person’s life? What negative impact can words have?

Aunt Elinor has spent her time living adventures in her library. What does she learn about embracing the actual world? Why is it important to balance fiction and fantasy with real life experiences?

What characters from literature would you like to be able to bring to life?
