What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is rated R for very strong language, brief non-explicit nudity, and sexual references and situations. Characters are in peril and some are shot. There is a fatal automobile accident and a child is killed offscreen. Sharon jokes that she was looking for a man to "clean her pipes." There are references to domestic abuse, and we see a woman who has been hit in the face.
- Families can talk about how we can find a way to create a balance between privacy and intimacy, between mourning a loss and moving on, between trying to make things better and accepting something less than perfect. They may also want to talk about Sharon's conflicts over how to respond to her father's abuse of her mother. When Sharon and Catch first become close, she asks him to kiss her somewhere she has never been kissed before -- it may be worth discussing with teenagers the importance of keeping yourself precious enough so that you can give the person you love something that is just for the two of you.
