What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Save the Date is an indie romantic comedy about two sisters at opposite end of the relationship spectrum -- one is busy planning her wedding, while the other is coming off a bad break-up. Expect frank emotional discussions, both between the siblings and between couples, and many sex scenes; they don't show any sensitive body parts, but they're still plenty racy (including some vigorous motions and explicit sounds). Characters drink, get drunk, smoke pot, and make bad decisions while wasted. There's also plenty of swearing, including "f--k," "s--t," and more.
- Families can talk about how Save the Date presents sex and relationships. Does it offer realistic, healthy alternatives to being with someone? Parents, talk to you teens about your own values on these topics.
- What do you think about the sisterly relationship between Sarah and Beth? Does it seem realistic? Teens: If you have siblings, how do you think you'll get along with them when you're adults?
- Talk about Sarah's choices. Why did she reject a proposal? Who do you think is the best partner for her, Kevin, Jonathan, or neither?
