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.

This movie is based on the novel Headhunters by Jules Bass.

What are the challenges of living in the shadow of a highly successful parent? Why does Theo feel like he is not making any contributions?

How does Prince Domenico (Giulio Berruti) refer to the serving staff at his dinner on the yatch? How does that affect Emma’s feelings about him? What does she do as a result of his comment? What does this film say about different classes of people?

Is there a difference between stealing and seizing an opportunity? How does the film justify the girls’ lies? Should there be some kind of punishment for their actions? What would be appropriate?
