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.

What are the challenges of aging that Craig and Irene face? How does he show his love for her even as she becomes increasingly dependent and fearful? How does his view of her medical condition differ from that of his children? Why is that so?

How does the couple’s dining room table become symbolic of their life together? Why is Craig more interested in taking his time building the house than he is in quickly finishing it? Why is he reluctant to take help from others?

How does Craig’s outlook on life differ from his friend Chester’s? How is that depicted in the comparison between Craig’s truck and Chester’s new tractor?
