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.

After watching his choices and actions, what can we learn about Matthew’s inner character? Based on his choice to have casual sex with a woman he just met, while claiming to be in love with another woman, and at the same time being engaged to a third, what do you think are the chances of Matthew committing to a quality relationship with one partner?

This movie uses many flashback sequences to tell a story in an unconventional manner. Does this technique, where we suddenly see a past action and understand its significance, reflect the way we experience unfolding events in real life?
