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.

Do you think being able to recognize your own mental failings means you’re not “crazy?” Why is it so difficult to define what “crazy” really means?

Claire feels Catherine is incapable of caring for herself. How can expressions of love and concern for someone be misinterpreted as interfering with their lives? Do you think her feelings were solely in concern for her sister, or are other factors motivating her decision to take over Catherine’s life?
