What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Paper Chase is a 1973 college drama that shows its age. While the content is relatively mild -- some discussions between couples in bed, a bit of swearing and drinking -- the story won't be of interest to most kids. Teens might be able to identify with academic pressures, plus the messages that knowledge is its own reward and one must work hard to achieve a difficult goal are all positives for this age group.
