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.

Family is defined in the film as those we share blood with and those for whom we would give our blood. What characters in this movie best embody that ideal?
