What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Painting is a French animated adventure dubbed into English. Following the three classes of people depicted in an unfinished painting -- the completely colored "Alldunns," the somewhat done "Halfies," and the charcoal "Sketchies" -- the movie deals with mature themes like discrimination, tyranny, and forbidden love. A young couple kisses and embraces a few times, and the Alldunns treat both the Sketchies and the Halfies inhumanely -- forcing them to their bidding and even stomping/killing Sketchies. The movie should spark some questions about prejudice and how to overcome it.
