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 do we have a right to see or know about celebrities? The same laws that apply to the taking of pictures of famous people also apply to the general public. Would you mind if someone, with a camera lens capable of seeing small objects in the distance, stood on the public sidewalk in front of your home and took pictures of you? At what point would you feel your privacy is invaded?

Do you read celebrity tabloid newspapers or magazines? If you look closely at the pictures, you can tell which ones have been taken at legitimate press opportunities, and those that are bordering on the invasion of privacy. Aside from obvious clues (like unflattering poses or clothing), grainy photographs indicate the image has been “blown up” or extremely magnified, indicating the photographer was far away from his subject.
