|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.
Anna decides to ignore the expiration date on her student visa and stay in the country so she and Jacob can spend the whole summer in bed together. What do these actions and her ambition say about her sense of reality? How does a person represent their ability to act as an adult?
What challenges do some international relationships face? How does culture affect the way we see and interact with the world? Why did this couple need to show evidence of their relationship to the immigration office?
Are all long distance relationships doomed? In what ways does Anna’s editor (Finola Hughes) and her husband maintain their marriage while living in different cities? What complexities are involved and what level of commitment is needed for success? Although both Jacob and Anna are sexually involved with other people, why do they each appear to be hurt when the other one is unfaithful?
After introducing Jacob to whiskey, what happens to Anna’s alcohol consumption? Why does she modify her liquor usage?
