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.

According to Matthew Kragen, what makes a person important? How accurate are the stereotypical portrayals of rich people? How does Georgia treat the hotel staff and why does she do it?

Living everyday as if it were your last is one sentiment expressed in this script. What is the balance between living each day fully, and planning for the future? In what ways (other than spending all her money) does Georgia enjoy life? How does she affect people around her?

Georgia’s Book of Possibilities includes pamphlets and pictures of things she would like to experience or accomplish. How important are these visual reminders of her dreams? What would you put in your own book?
