What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has brief strong language, gay characters (one out, one closeted) who are positively portrayed, and references to an out of wedlock teen pregnancy. Melanie gets drunk (and gets sick). Drinking, vandalism, and minor crimes are portrayed as evidence of a free spirit.
- Families can talk about why people are tempted to lie about their past, and how they would respond if they found out someone they cared about had lied to them. What does Melanie mean when she says "I figured if I was pointing at you, no one would see through me." What didn't she want them to see? What is Melanie likely to do next?
