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.

Movies aimed at family audiences often depict a child who has recently lost one or both parents. Why do you think this concept is so popular? How does it change the viewer’s attitude toward the character?

Gambling on horse races is a subplot in this film. Do you think this type of wagering differs from other forms of betting, such as slot machines or casino games? Why is horse racing often depicted as a more “sophisticated” method of gambling?
