What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Love Is All You Need is a dramedy about love and marriage that mixes sadder moments with light ones. For a romcom of sorts, it takes on some heavy themes -- including mortality, death, infidelity, and sexual identity -- that are a better fit for older teens and adults. Some scenes feature partial nudity (a woman walks in on her husband in a sexually compromising position with his female colleague, and the colleague is naked from the waist down, with her rear end visible), opposite-sex and same-sex characters kiss, there's some drinking (including to drunkenness), and characters swear ("s--t," "damn," etc.) in both Danish and English.
  • Families can talk about how Love Is All You Need portrays sex and relationships. Parents, talk to your teens about your own values on these subjects.
  • Weddings seem to figure prominently in many movies; what it is about them that makes them great material? How is this movie similar to, and different from, other wedding movies? Does it perpetuate any stereotypes?
  • In what ways are the characters struggling with their gender roles and identities? Are they able to resolve their questions?
