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.

The robot Pero questions why humans always use violence to resolve issues. What are some non-violent methods that can be used to solve problems? Can you find examples of non-violent actions being used in our society today?

Duke Red, an up-and-coming government official, believes that the best type of leader is one who rules without emotion. What would be the advantages and /or dangers of this type of leader? Would you want a ruler who governed by reason only, without considering the emotional needs of his people? Can you think of any leaders like that in our world?

Metropolis is a city of zones: the mighty and powerful live in the highest buildings while robots, the poor, and others are relegated to the lower levels. How does this figuratively reflect our society today?
