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.

Films often fail to address the financial realities of its characters. While we know Luke is in trouble with the bank, how does the script suggest he pays for his mortgage? How does the troupe cover electricity, food and other monetary needs for costumes, electronics etc.?

A former team member tells Luke it is time to grow up and face facts. How credible is this comment considering that Carlos is still involved as a dancer himself? What kinds of employment opportunities are available for these performers? As in other professional athletic arenas, how difficult is it to succeed in this field?

What impact does lying have on relationships in this movie? How hard is it to reestablish trust?
