But before he knows what is happening, the woman begins stalking him. Worse yet, her obsessed behavior soon has Derek's wife (Beyonce Knowles) wondering if he has adulterous intentions.

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.

What steps could Derek have taken to minimize the damage done by Lisa? How are we often lured into thinking situations aren’t as serious as they truly are? What were the first warning signs that Lisa might be a problem?

In one scene in this film, Lisa is distress so Derek extends verbal kindness and sympathy toward her. What might have been a more appropriate way for him to handle this conversation? How have our worries about sexual impropriety in the workplace changed the way we deal with others? Do you feel these concerns are valid, or an over reaction?
