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.

Why can it be difficult for a performer to avoid the pitfalls of fame? How can popularity affect an artist’s edge? What compromises does Drew make for the sake of being on stage? How realistic is Sherrie’s dream of making it big in Los Angeles?

What is the cultural significance of Rock-n-Roll? How has this musical genre influenced performers through the decades? Who do you think is the most influential performer or band? How does this film further the conventions of rock-n-roll?
