Quirky, sweet indie dramedy has some mature moments.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Brigsby Bear is a sweet, quirky dramedy about a man (Saturday Night Live's Kyle Mooney) who was held prisoner his whole life and is obsessed with a made-up TV show. Expect some sexual content: A teen girl kisses the main character, undoes his zipper, and reaches for his crotch. There's also kissing, and the main character masturbates under the covers. "S--t" is used regularly, and "f--k" and other words are heard occasionally. The main character drinks and takes a pill at a party, gets dizzy, hallucinates, and passes out. Teens are briefly shown drinking, and weed is mentioned. There's an explosion, and a TV set is thrown through a window. While the characters aren't ideal role models, the movie does offer messages of compassion and kindness toward those who are different.
