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 does Father Solomon incite suspicions among the people? How does this lessen their ability to work together to fight the werewolf? What other leaders have turned their people against one another by raising doubts among them?

Valerie is very much the central character of this story. Does the focus on her hinder the development of the other characters? Do you think the villagers’ response to her is reflective of the time in which they lived? How did superstition and fear affect the actions of people during medieval times?
