Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Mia Wasikowska puts in a nuanced performance but nobody else, actors and directors included, are capable of finding a compelling angle beneath the twee veneer.

Common Sense Says
Story of young, tragic love gets emotional, intense.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this romantic indie drama about young, tragic love may well appeal to teens, though it deals candidly and often sadly with illness and death -- which can make it feel heavy and a bit intense at times. There's some swearing (including "s--t"), war imagery/discussion, and kissing/cuddling. It's implied that the two main characters have sex, though nothing graphic is shown, and their relationship is very sweet overall.
