What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that teen fans of The Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth may well want to see Love and Honor -- but know that it has a fair bit of drug use, sexuality, and violence. Considering the '60s setting, the drug use (marijuana) isn't that unexpected; nor is the tension between protesters and police and the shooting in the movie's brief war scene. There are two love scenes (bare-chested men and bra-wearing women) and a few passionate kisses. Teens will at the very least learn, if they haven't already, about the opposition to the Vietnam War.
- Families can talk about whether movies set during the Vietnam era are still relevant. Why is it rare to see movies about Vietnam now when they were so popular in the '80s and '90s? Is there a modern equivalent?
- Does Love and Honor have more to do with the war or with the characters' romantic relationships? What did you learn about the Vietnam War?
- Teens: Is there a cause you feel passionately about that you could help? How could you get involved?
