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.

Rachel blames Darcy for many of her problems. But what role does this lawyer play in her own unhappiness? Why does she allow Darcy to treat her as she does?

What results from Rachel’s dishonesty? Who, beside herself, is hurt by her lack of truthfulness? What are the long-term consequences of her lies? Do people sometimes confuse lying with being nice?

How do the characters’ casual attitudes toward sex and alcohol affect them? Does the script present any consequences?
