What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that This Beautiful Fantastic is a sentimental English romantic dramedy with the tone and feel of real-life fairy story, which makes it suitable for kids. Its comic, whimsical approach softens the fact that the lead character, a shy and unusual young woman (Jessica Brown Findlay of Downton Abbey), was abandoned as an infant and, as an adult, seems to be suffering from obsessive-compulsive urges (her compulsions and phobias are portrayed as charming quirks, rather than serious issues). She experiences some heartbreak but recovers. Her greatest challenge is to get out and live her life, and friends help her learn how -- she also learns to work hard and persevere in order to meet a challenging goal. A character dies (off screen), but he leaves an inspiring legacy. Strong language is infrequent but includes "bastard," "hell," and "bloody." There's some flirting and brief kissing, and adults drink wine. Arguments and a strong storm could distress sensitive kids, but they pass quickly.
