|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.
Did you spot the smoking scenes? At least two times, Linda is shown supposedly smoking but her hand is held just out of view. Why do you think the filmmakers chose to crop the hand? Why do you think cigarette use would be suggested but not totally shown?
How does the film play on viewers’ fears? What anxieties does it bring to the surface for Linda? Why does she worry about seemingly inconsequential details, like being able to reach the platter on the top shelf?
What challenges do Jim and Linda face in their marriage? How do the warnings influence the way Linda interacts with her husband? Do you believe the future is malleable or cast in stone?
