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.

In this movie, the audience is expected to have empathy for a man who makes his living through illegal means. How do movies like this try and convince us that criminals are heroes? If you have seen this movie, at what point are we first expected to feel like Frank is a nice guy?

In what other ways does this movie manipulate truth? How long could Frank make a living doing what he does before his life would be in serious danger? Are criminals more able to enforce justice than police?

Notice the portrayal of the only female character in this film. What methods does she use to gain Franks trust and protection?
