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.

During the movie, Marcellus spares the life of a Roman soldier with whom he is fighting for control of the troops. Why do you think he allowed the man to live? Do you think his decision was a sign of courage or weakness? When can walking away from trouble be the best thing to do?

Demetrius tells Marcellus that no amount of money can buy his friendship. How is true friendship earned? How did the relationship between Demetrius and Marcellus change over time?

One of the characters in the movie claims, “man’s desire to be free is the greatest madness of all.” What do you think he meant?
