Still shot from the movie: Uncle Nino.

Uncle Nino

Nino Micelli (Pierrino Mascarino) has long dreamed of visiting his relatives in the United States. When he finally gets the chance, he leaves his native Italy with an old violin and a suitcase full of homemade wine. His unexpected arrival at his nephew's (Joe Mantegna) home in Chicago brings his slow and simple old-world ways into collision with the fast-paced complexities of modern society.

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.

Which do you think came first the Mincelli family’s mix-up in their priorities or a loss in their sense of connectedness? Were the parents the only ones at fault in this situation? What has happened to Uncle Nino to help him recognize what things were the most important in life? Is your family struggling with any of these issues too?

Why do you think Abraham Lincoln was Uncle Nino’s hero? What kind of people do you try to emulate?
