What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this romantic indie drama about young, tragic love may well appeal to teens, though it deals candidly and often sadly with illness and death -- which can make it feel heavy and a bit intense at times. There's some swearing (including "s--t"), war imagery/discussion, and kissing/cuddling. It's implied that the two main characters have sex, though nothing graphic is shown, and their relationship is very sweet overall.
- Families can talk about how the film handles its subject matter. Is it too frank about death? Does it exploit the topic?
- In the movie, two young people fall in love despite many challenges and appear to have sex. Does the film portray this experience realistically? Parents, talk to your teens about your own values relating to sex and relationships.
