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.

Despite the failings of the justice system, should a person be able to take the law into their own hands? What might be the wider repercussions of such activities?

How does Max deal with the death of his family? What impact does it have on his relationships with other people?

How does greed influence characters in this film?
