well, there are 2 different ways :
1st you show the movie, than make with your student a short summary, ask them their feelings and notice the important voc about the different themes you want to speak about.
you prepare the voc first or make the students look for some vocabulary first, give the students some clues about the film before viewing it, or give them the starting asking them how they imagine the end if they don �t have already seen it or make a very short summary with some important voc.Then show the film, ask the students their feelings, how they would react if...
Hope this will help.
