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 does Clint Eastwood’s depiction of Gus reflect his own stage of life? Would a younger man be as sympathetic to the issues of old age? How does an actor’s own experiences affect the way a character is portrayed? What other special interest groups get special attention in this movie?

How can the events of childhood continue with a person into their old age? What can parents do to lessen the baggage their children carry? What responsibilities do children have in building better relationships with their parents? What can be done if one of the parties in a conflict doesn’t want to reconcile?
