Great study guide for the movie. I have several of her movie guides and, while they are excellent, I wish she would include an answer sheet for the teacher that includes at what point in the movie the questions are answered. I love that her questions are open-ended, but it makes it difficult to follow along when I've only seen the movie once or twice. Maybe it's a personal problem! lol
