What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the couple in this film are married to others, talk about how wrong it is to sleep together, but do it anyway. Then they collude to lie to each others' partners about what they've just done. The man also talks about killing himself out of loneliness and longing, which may be disturbing to some viewers.
- Families can talk about relationships. What roles do former flames play in current relationships? Can you have any lingering sentimental feelings or can you move on without looking back? This is also a good opportunity to talk to teens about what kind of relationship they want to be in. Would you put up with a relationship like the one Sarah has with the man? What are signs that your boyfriend or girlfriend is still hung up on someone else? How do you know whether to stay with that person or not?
