What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Breathe In is an earnest indie drama about a married father going through a midlife crisis who begins an affair with the teen foreign-exchange student who has moved in with them. The movie does not shy away from teens drinking at parties and talking openly about sex. A teen boy kisses a teen girl in his car after a party; he begins making unwelcome sexual advances, and when the girl tries to leave the vehicle, he attempts to force her to stay. This boy later spreads rumors that the girl actually had sex with him, resulting in some bullying scenes in which other teen girls call her a "slut." This same girl is later shown driving drunk after a party in which -- in a moment of deep despair over what has transpired between her father and the foreign-exchange student -- she makes sexual advances toward the same boy who spread rumors about her. She ends up losing control of her car and crashing it into a tree. There's profanity ("f--k") and a slow boil of sexual undertones between the father and foreign-exchange student, culminating in touching and kissing.
