Anything Is PossibleClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Anything Is Possible features a mother in a military family possibly killed overseas, with the family held in suspense for the duration of the film. The family is further broken apart when the 10-year-old boy is put in an orphanage while his father's identity is determined, and for a period he runs away but remains unharmed. There are some intense scenes and conversations about grief and loss, some brief scenes that involve sick kids at a hospital, and references to PTSD and emotional heaviness throughout as they await news of the mother's fate. The film emphasizes the triumph of hope, character, and community, with a focus on using musical talent as a coping mechanism, but the mature content is better for older kids and may be too intense for kids who have actually lost a parent to military service.
