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 difficult is it to face an inevitable decline after peaking in one’s profession, physical prowess or other aspect of life? Which of these characters deals with the decline most gracefully? How does a willingness to learn new things help some of them deal with old age more successfully?

This cast of actors brings a wealth of acting experience to the screen. How is that experience evident in their performances?

How do the choices of our youth come back to haunt or bless us in old age? What sacrifices do many of these characters make for their art? What choices would you change in your life? Is there a way to amend some of those choices?
