What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie has extremely strong language and sexual references, including out of wedlock pregnancies. Characters drink and smoke a lot and one becomes drunk. There are some sad deaths (offscreen) and some mild peril (no one hurt). The thoughtlessness and prejudice Fin experiences are sensitively portrayed and there is a lovely friendship that transcends age and race.
- Families can talk about why Olivia only could be friends with Joe after meeting Fin and what made each of the characters begin to want to be with each other.
