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 did Rodriguez lack of initial success impact his life’s direction? What does his construction coworker say about Rodriguez’s approach to the dirty work of demolition? What effect does his newfound fame have on the singer?

How might his career have unfolded differently if he were to begin his career now? How does he preserve the mystery surrounding his personal life? What effect may this film have on his future? Can celebrities protect their privacy in the age of the Internet?
