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.

This film suggests a number of explanations for real historical events. Does that give the script a more credible feel?

Evelyn’s husband refers to her as Mata Hari, a Dutch exotic dancer who was accused of being a spy for Germany. She was executed in 1917. Do spies play a role in national security? Is there a better way to get confidential information? What is the risk of someone being a double agent?

How might this portrayal of an aggressive female assailant affect female viewers? What about male viewers?
