What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some strong language. An unmarried couple lives together and there are references to a drunken sexual encounter and an out of wedlock pregnancy. Getting drunk is portrayed as freeing. There is non-graphic violence. Some viewers may be upset by the seer's prediction. And some younger viewers may be disturbed by the reference to divorced parents, even though it is amicable.
