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.

Why does the past often seem better than the present? What things do people overlook about the past? Do you believe that “nostalgia is a denial of the painful present”?

How are Inez and her American parents portrayed in this film? How do they behave as tourists in the foreign city?

How does Owen Wilson’s character compare with the roles Woody Allen plays in his earlier films?

Many historical literary, art and music figures are portrayed in this movie. Cole Porter was an American composer and songwriter. F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway were writers. Gertrude Stein was an art collector and poet. Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso were influential artists. And while there is no mention of a woman named Adriana in Picasso’s life, he was well known for his many mistresses.
