What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film focuses on a young woman's decisions concerning her upcoming wedding and sometimes strained relationship with her mother, a famous actress. It includes sexual references, a brief passionate encounter in a hallway, some language, repeated cheating by romantic partners (heterosexual and homosexual), and some verbal arguments. During a mugging that takes about 20 seconds, one character is stabbed in his side.
- Families can talk about the relationship between Isabel and her mother Diana, as they discuss men, romance, cheating, and money. Families might also discuss the lack of communication between Isabel and her fiancé: how does the movie use their mutual deceits and silences as a way to critique contemporary, urban focus on careerism and self-interest?
