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.

June has an ability to look beyond Johnny’s addiction and shortcomings. Because of that, how was she able to help him deal with his own destructive behavior? What do you think she sees in him? What role can strong friends play in helping a person overcome problems?

What parental opinions do both Johnny and June have to deal with in the film? How do those views affect the way they perceive themselves? How does each of them respond?

What challenges can accompany success? What are the less glamorous aspects of the music business?
