What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a beautiful love story about two twentysomethings who meet in college but soon have to navigate a relationship separated by oceans and diverging life paths. Couples are shown (bare shoulders, kissing) and heard (some moans) in intimate moments, but there's no graphic nudity; the movie seems more interested in the feelings between the lovers: how they grow, confuse, distance. There's also some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k") and mature themes (infidelity and some tricky immigration muck-ups, for instance), as well as a fair amount of social drinking. Characters do discuss cutting back on alcohol, and there's a talk about safe sex.
- Families can talk about Anna's and Jacob's relationship. Is it a healthy one? How does it change over the course of a movie? Parents, talk to your teens about your own values when it comes to sex and relationships.
- How does the movie depict sex? What about drinking? Are there realistic consequences for both?
