What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Beyond the Farthest Star is a dark faith-based drama about a family that's struggling with some profound issues, working through them, and beginning the arduous task of moving forward. After a series of professional missteps, a pastor, famous as a child for his amazing evangelical prowess, now finds himself and his family relegated to a church in a small Texas town. There, family discord edges toward the breaking point. Alcoholism, dishonesty, mental illness, betrayal, child abuse, even First Amendment issues are all touched upon in this movie. Religious beliefs and faith play an important part in the film's resolution(s). Expect some violent scenes: gunplay, arson, a fierce fight, as well as a teen girl who's troubled and self-mutilates as a release from intense unhappiness. There's some drinking and drunkenness, and one minor character is a mean alcoholic. Characters smoke. A smattering of mild curse words ("damn," "hell," "ass") and insults ("freak," "punk ass") are heard.
