Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the subject matter of this 1960s-set indie drama -- which centers on a man who's deeply mourning the loss of his longtime boyfriend and is desperate to find a reason to go on -- may be too heavy/morbid for younger teens (and even some older ones). The idea of suicide is explored, and the main character's world feels incredibly bleak at times, though he does manage to find moments of joy. Expect a fair amount of male nudity (though no frontal shots), plus some smoking, drinking, and swearing ("s--t").
Lots of instances in which men are shown nude (though not from the front), frolicking in the ocean or floating underwater. Two men kiss. Discussion between a man and a woman about their previous coupling.
A man buys bullets for a gun. He practices different ways he could shoot himself. A man dies in a car accident; his body is shown on the ground, bloodied.
A few instances of swearing ("s--t").
The movie deals with the impact of the loss of a loved one; it's a hard topic, but it's explored in an honest way. Friendship appears to be a lifeline, but only just.
Some labels shown, including Bayer, Coca-Cola, Hershey's.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some period-accurate smoking. Characters are also shown drinking, some to inebriation.
