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.

Many religious organizations offer marriage preparation and marriage enrichment classes. Does this film accurately portray what happens in those sessions? What things are important for a bride and groom to discuss before taking their vows? How might individual attitudes toward work habits, leisure time, household responsibilities, future family, and religious views affect a marriage?

What do Sadie and Ben learn about the value of communication? How do their styles differ?

Does the portrayal of religious characters in this film affect the way you feel about religion or seeking spiritual guidance?
