The Last Mimzy

Two youngsters (Rhiannon Leigh Wryn, Chris O?Neil) find some strange objects they consider toys. Amongst them is an old stuffed bunny they call Mimzy. Yet when the siblings begin playing with the mysterious items, extraordinary things start to happen --like an increase in the children's intellectual abilities. The movie is based on a science fiction story by Lewis Padgett. 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.

The controversial Patriot Act has been alluded to in other movies as of late (like The Astronaut Farmer). How can subtle (and not so subtle) political comments be made using the technique of introducing a real life concept into a fictitious story? If your family is interested in knowing more about The Patriot Act, the American Library Association maintains a page that links to a variety of factual and analytical resources: http://www.ala.org/ala/oif/ifissues/usapatriotact.htm

The family in this movie has a second home on Whidbey Island off the coast of Washington State. For more information on this location, check these sites:
