Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this is a beautiful love story about two twentysomethings who meet in college but soon have to navigate a relationship separated by oceans and diverging life paths. Couples are shown (bare shoulders, kissing) and heard (some moans) in intimate moments, but there's no graphic nudity; the movie seems more interested in the feelings between the lovers: how they grow, confuse, distance. There's also some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k") and mature themes (infidelity and some tricky immigration muck-ups, for instance), as well as a fair amount of social drinking. Characters do discuss cutting back on alcohol, and there's a talk about safe sex.
In some scenes, couples are shown clearly having sex (moaning and groaning, etc.), but the camera focuses on their faces rather than other body parts. Also plenty of kissing and making out. An discussion between a young couple and the girl's parents about safe sex.
Some loud arguing.
Infrequent use of words including "s--t" and "f--k," plus "oh my God."
The movie posits that you shouldn't shy away from a relationship simply because it's too complicated, because then you'd miss out on all the wonderful things it teaches you: how to relate to someone else who might be quite different from you, how to resolve arguments, the importance of clear and honest communication. It also says that you can accomplish a lot with enormous support from family members.
Some labels/products shown, including the iPhone and the board game Balderdash. Whisky brands are mentioned.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A fair amount of social drinking in bars, clubs, and restaurants. Some characters fancy themselves as whisky connoisseurs, and they partake of different labels. Two characters discuss living a healthier lifestyle and cutting down on their drinking.
