Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this low-key fantasy will win tweens' hearts, and most will find the brief scary parts just spooky enough. But as Darby and the leprechauns swap clever tricks, the film's engaging plot and evocative styling will keep the attention of older kids and adults as well. There's some drinking, shown as acceptable, and some brief scary scenes that may disturb more sensitive children.

Sexual Content

Some kissing.

Violence

A moaning banshee, harbinger of death, and the Costa Bower, the death coach, make a short, shivery appearance. Some violence; mostly off-screen. The heroine swipes the hero's cheek, leaving a mark.

Language

Social Behavior

Janet Munro's character is assertive and doesn't wait for the boy she likes to ask her out.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
