What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's racism and prejudice in this movie. Police officers refer to the two main characters as a "n---r" and an "old Jew." Though not shown, a Jewish synagogue is bombed. A man tells a story about a racially motivated lynching from his childhood. The beginning of the movie features a very mild, injury-free car crash and later, there's a frantic, upsetting scene that hints at Alzheimer's.
- Families can talk about racism and prejudice as well as friendship. What types of racism or prejudice have you experienced? Why do you think it's difficult for people to see beyond a person's skin color or religion? Do you have any friendships with people who are outwardly very different?
