What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although this movie features child actors, centers around a family with young children, and even has a costumed character that appeals to children, it's rife with mature themes like infidelity, failure, and abandonment. One young character seems particularly enraged and forlorn and exhibits his frustrations by hitting and throwing objects. There's drinking, lots of swearing, and some partial nudity (though it's not sexual in nature).
- Families can talk about what the Kabluey represents. How does Salman change as he spends more time running around as Kabluey? Families can also discuss Salman's reason for helping out. Was it just because he was at a dead end? What does he gain from helping? At what point did his attitude change, and why? What about Leslie? Does she seem like a good parent? Why do you think she is the way she is? What does she think about Salman when he first arrives, and how does it change over the course of the movie?
