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 do increased security risks affect airport officials when it comes to dealing with foreign travelers? Is there ever a circumstance when compassion should be extended?

What personal initiative did Viktor show when it came to dealing with his situation? How did that influence the airport employees to change their minds about him?

Besides money, what other things might make a person envious?
