What parents need to know

Parents need to know that while Adult World is indeed set in an adult DVD store, there's not much actual sex in the movie. Yes, there are a few bawdy discussions about the various types of videos available at the shop and plenty of sex toys visible in the background, but the film focuses on a (fairly) recent college grad with no means to support herself (besides her parents) who needs a job until her dream of becoming a paid, published, famous poet comes true. There are a few scenes that show people getting pretty drunk or smoking pot, and occasional swearing (mostly "s--t" with one well-timed "f--k").
  • Families can talk about the movie's messages about dreams. What point is the film trying to make about life goals? Does this movie treat young adulthood realistically?
  • Why is this movie set in an adult DVD shop? Would the movie have been very different if it were set in a library or a tool shop?
