Appendix A in the back of the book lists 40+ movies mentioned in almost every chapter. For each movie I include a few words to describe its theme and any cautions. The ratings span from G to R. Most of the R movies are rated this way because of the intense violence or trauma necessary to tell the story.
Use the seven questions in the appendix to help you organize your experience into a plan for growth. Here are two of the questions:
- What are the main themes and principles of the movie?
- With which character do you identify most? Least?
