What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The History of Future Folk is a quirky 2013 movie about a pair of aliens sent to destroy the Earth who change their minds after hearing music for the first time. It's a charming low-budget indie film that should appeal to parents and kids who appreciate strong story lines and don't mind minimal special effects. There's some frank discussion between a father and daughter about marital problems. There's also some fighting: Characters get into a huge brawl in a holding cell in jail, for instance, and, in other scenes, an elderly woman is karate-chopped and knocked out, a female police officer is taken prisoner, and a security guard is head-butted. Overall the film's message about the transformative power of music should appeal to a broad spectrum of viewers.
