What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Birder's Guide to Everything is a coming-of-age film with a little bit of sexuality and lots of strong and crude language. Though there's plenty of humor in the movie, the untimely death of the central teen boy's mother is a theme that runs throughout, adding some sadness and grief to the story. There's some very mild flirting and a quick peek at a woman's breast, plus a few drug references.
  • Families can talk about the characters in the movie. Do they seem realistic? Does any of their behavior remind you of your friends or people at school?
  • What message do you think the filmmakers wanted you to get out of the movie? What clues lead you to this conclusion?
  • What was the purpose of the nudity in the movie? Did it connect to the story in some way?
