What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Tuck Everlasting, a Disney film about a teen girl who meets a family who is immortal after drinking from a fountain of youth on their property, raises profound questions about life and death, the cycle of life, and aging. Besides the heady subject matter, there are some violent altercations of characters being shot at or hit in the head with rifles. Overall, the film should raise interesting discussions about immortality, life, and how to live.  
  • Families can talk about what they would do if they had the choice presented to Winnie.
  • Families can also talk about how the movie compares with the book. Why make Winnie a teen in the movie when she is only 10 in the book? How does that change the story?
  • How does this treatment of immortality differ from vampire stories?
