Win Win

Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) is a stressed out, financially failing lawyer who is trying to earn a little extra cash by coaching the high school wrestling team.

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.

Mike gets after his six-year-old daughter for swearing even though he and his wife do it. How important is a parent’s example when it comes to behavior? What type of language is allowed in your home? Is there a different standard for children and adults?

A sign at a food outlet in this film reminds customers to not use cell phones while ordering. How does art reflect life with this sign? What other examples of current trends or products are depicted in this film?

What are Mike’s admirable qualities? How does his treatment of individuals affect their lives? What sacrifices is he willing to make for others? Do those sacrifices justify or redeem some of his poor decisions?
