What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that older teens may be intrigued by this indie drama because of star John Krasinski and writers Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida. Its unvarnished look at different types of parenting, though exaggerated for cinematic effect, hits home and could very well prompt some internal analysis. Expect a range of strong language (including "s--t" and "f--k"), some sexuality (including a glimpse of a bare breast), and social drinking.
