Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Chestnut: Hero of Central Park is a film about two orphan girls who are adopted, but who must hide their beloved rescue dog from their parents, culminating in a scene where the dog is injured (with blood shown) and thought to be dying. Some of the themes of potential pet loss and girls whose lives revolve around their orphan status may be upsetting to some children.
