The Truth About Charlie

The Truth About Charlie is a remake of the 1963 movie Charade. In this version, recently married Regina Lambert (Thandie Newton) decision to divorce her husband Charlie (Stephen Dillane) proves unnecessary when she learns he has been murdered. But now she is faced with an even more alarming concern: Charlie has been accused of taking six million dollars, and both the U.S. Government and Charlie's old war buddies think she needs to come up with the missing cash.

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.

Movies often do things that are illogical. For instance, why could Joshua keep up with the man running to the apartment but not Regina when she was running away from him in high-heeled shoes? How do directors manipulate scenes to achieve their desired effect?

Regina is portrayed as very trusting. What situations did she find herself in that would make you feel uncomfortable in your own life? What safety issues do you consider when meeting someone for the first time, either in person or on the Internet?
