What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this quirky coming-of-age film may appeal to teens familiar with the restless boredom and paralyzing worries that the high school years can impose. Although things ultimately head toward an up note, some of the material is dark and moody. Expect scenes of underage drinking -- both in bars, which the characters likely were able to infiltrate with fake IDs (though this isn't made explicit), and at parties -- sometimes to the point of drunkenness, as well as references to sex (including an 18-year-old sleeping with an older man) and swearing (including infrequent use of "s--t" and "f--k").
