Anthony Burns's sweetly nostalgic re-creation of small-town Texas in the early 1980s.

Lots of teen smoking, drinking in so-so coming-of-age drama.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this teen coming-of-age drama set in a small Texas town in the early 1980s includes many scenes of partying and teen drinking (mostly beer, but some hard liquor as well), as well as heavy cigarette smoking and a scene of pot smoking. Language is infrequent but fairly strong -- including "s--t" and "a--hole," in addition to some homosexual slurs. There's kissing and some sex, but no nudity is shown. There are also some bullies and fighting. The movie has several female characters who are beginning to assert their identities, but it also treats many other women as objects. The movie isn't particularly good, but some of the actors come from the Twilight franchise, so teens may be interested.
