Still shot from the movie: Mama.

Mama

When Victoria and Lilly (Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nélisse) are found after a five-year disappearance, the young girls are sent to live with their Aunt and Uncle (Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). But the challenges prove greater than what might be expected because the orphans keep talking about (and to) an unseen Mama. 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.

What elements are always found in a horror movie? How can a director use these creatively to build suspense? What role does the musical score play in generating tension?

What leads the father in this movie to murder his business partners and wife before preparing to kill his children? What other stresses can cause people to contemplate suicide or murder? Where can individuals turn for help?

How did the girls’ ages at the time of their disappearance impact their ability to integrate back into society?
