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.

How does the desire for titles and position drive the Boleyn family? What impact does it eventually have on them? How are the qualities of kindness and compassion viewed?

What gender differences are portrayed in this film? What are the double standards? How does Anne defy the balance of power? What impact does she have on the kingdom?

Marriages were often arranged for political reasons. How does this affect the couples in this movie? Is love possible in an arranged marriage?
