What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Little Boy is a period drama about a smaller-than-average boy who believes that if he finishes a "magic list" of good deeds, he can miraculously bring his father back from World War II. There are some scenes of violence, including newsreel footage of WWII and sequences set during the war (including in a Japanese POW camp), plus sequences in which a group of men harass and beat up a Japanese American out of anger and prejudice. Language ranges from insults ("idiot," "midget") to WWII-era racial epithets ("Jap," "yellow hide," "Buddha head"), but the themes and messages -- from the power of family to the beauty of the father-son bond -- are positive and age appropriate for older tweens.
