Maid In Manhattan

Every now and then, a girl could use a fairy godmother with a magic wand to whip up some glass slippers and a new gown.

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 did Marisa’s mistake contribute to a tangle of lies? How can letting someone believe something that is not true be the same as telling a lie? How important is honesty in a relationship?

The hotel’s motto was that their service people should be invisible. What does that mean? Are people who provide valuable services often overlooked? What examples show that Marissa went above and beyond the duties of her job?

How likely is it that Marisa would be able to find another job in the hotel business considering the reason for her dismissal?

How are minority groups depicted in this movie?
