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.

Is the saying “talk is cheap” true in this movie? What does Jack learn about the value of words? How does his experience with Dr. Sinja change the way he communicates? How does power appear to corrupt people?

What is the difference between telling someone you love them and showing them you do?

How does this movie portray women? How does Jack treat his wife? Do you agree with the attempts she makes to win him back?
