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 are mature women often portrayed in movies? What stereotypes about age does this film break? Was Erica’s character believable?

Movies often depict the older man/younger woman combination. What drives these women to have relationships with much older men? How often do you see an older woman with a younger man? Why are we starting to see these kinds of relationships portrayed more often?

To make a love story work, the audience needs to feel empathy for the characters. How did you feel about Erica, Harry and Julian? Who do you think got the short end of the stick? Do you believe that these characters have really changed their past habits and are ready for a real relationship?
