Questions for Children


Connecting over a film is more about listening and sharing. The questions below only serve as a springboard.
Pick your favorites and see what stories you discover along the way.

  1. You can always start with first thoughts or impressions: What do you think of the story? How does it make you feel? Favorite scene?
  2. What are the two kids doing before they meet?
  3. What do you think the girl's Barbie and Ken pretend conversation and the boy's pretend slaying of the dragon say about them?
  4. Why do you think the boy went back to slaying dragons when the girl wanted him to stay? What does it say about their desires?
  5. Do you feel that your life's desires do not match with what you are actually living? How are your desires different than those close to you?
