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.

In trying to prove his innocence, the protagonist in this film not only puts himself at risk, but also many other people. Is threatening their safety justified in this case? What other alternatives could Nick have explored? What happens early in the script to make it appear that this is his only choice? How does this add rationale to his actions?
