The Others (Movie) – 4 ESL English Discussion Questions

The Others

Summary reminder:


Grace (Nicole Kidman), the religious mother of Anne and Nicholas, moves her family to the darkened old family house on the English coast during World War II. She awaits word on her missing husband while protecting her children from a rare photo-sensitivity disease that causes the sun to harm them. Her daughter Anne claims she sees ghosts, Grace initially thinks the new servants are playing tricks but chilling events and visions make her believe something supernatural has occurred, and that the home is haunted.

1- Have you expected the twist at the end of the movie? Reminder of the twist: In a spin on the ghost story, it turns out it’s Grace and her children who are the ghosts: she killed them – before turning the gun on herself – in despair over the presumed death of her husband in World War II

2- Do you believe in life after death? If yes, how do you picture it?

3- How did you find Nicole’s acting in this film?

4- Do you think that life takes another shape and logic after death?
