What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this well acted and well-scripted '80s coming-of age film will be too adult for most kids under 12. Older kids get hooked by the appealing characters. We recommend an adult watch this one with them and discuss questionable behavior, including mockery, lying and teen drinking. Parents are absent from children's lives.
- Families can talk about their own teen children's experience may mirror Lucas's. How do they deal with rejection? How do they reject others out-of-hand?
