Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Chloe & Theo is a 2015 movie about an Inuit man named Theo who, at the behest of his elders, leaves "the North" (Nunavut) for "the South" (New York City), where he is to find the leaders of the rest of the world and alert them about the impending environmental apocalypse as both prophesied by Theo's forefathers and observed firsthand in the changes of his land. There are positive messages about saving the environment from climate change and the effect individuals, nonprofits, and corporations can have on bringing about positive change. Someone is stabbed to death by muggers and left for dead in a pool of his own blood, and an attempted mugging by a knife-wielding criminal is narrowly averted. One character is always holding and drinking from a brown-bagged bottle of booze, and another character makes reference to once being a junkie.
