What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that HairBrained centers on Eli (Alex Wolff) a 14-year-old teen prodigy who enrolls in college, and is befriended by a 41-year-old who's also starting as a freshman. Eli is initially bullied by some fellow students, but soon finds his niche as the star of the school's Collegiate Mastermind team, a trivia competition where his intelligence makes him a star. Along the way, he attends several raucous parties filled with drunken students and fends off the aggressive advance of a senior coed seems determined to have her way with the young teen. There's a good bit of swearing, a few students smoking pot, and some flirting and more age-appropriate kissing between Eli and girl who's closer to his age and just as smart.
