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 do stereotypes play into the script to make some crooks in the film more appealing and likeable than others?

John Bridger says thievery can enrich your life or define it, but how did it affect his ability to be a good father? What were the consequences of his lifestyle when it came to his relationship with Stella?

Despite the mayhem caused by these thieves, are there any consequences for their actions? Does glamorizing crime in movies make it more acceptable or alluring to youth? What are the costs of crime that society pays?
