What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this affecting play-based dramedy starring Nicole Kidman explores the aftermath of a profound loss -- parents mourning the accidental death of their young son. It’s unflinching and, thanks to that brutal honesty, may be too heavy and hard to watch for younger viewers. There’s also some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k"), pot smoking, and discussion about sex and a child’s death.
- Families can talk about how the movie tackles the subjects of grief and loss. Does it seem different from other movies?
- What is the movie's ultimate message? Do you consider the characters to be positive role models? Why or why not?
- Why do Becca and Howie have trouble supportingeach other through their grief? Does their experience seem realistic?
