Feel free to come and share your own personal insights sometime; the Saturday Night Video and Discussions here in Austin, Texas are a lot of fun and fascinating. (They're free, too.) Here are the questions the group came up with, based on the personal growth themes in the movie:


  1. How do I express anger?
  2. How have I handled disappointment?
  3. How have I been accepted after feeling like I don't count for anything?
  4. How can I get people to show their appreciation for me?
  5. How have I grown to trust people?
  6. What consequences have I experienced that seemed unfair?
  7. How have strangers cared about me / shown me more kindness than my own blood family?
  8. How can I focus with competing priorities?
  9. Whom do I miss most? Why?
  10. What do I owe my blood family?
