Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film is generally family-friendly. There's no violence, sex, or profanity. One brief scene shows a leading character drinking a shot of whiskey when he is upset; in a follow-up scene, he throws the bottle away. The father of Moondance, the young teen protagonist, has died three years before the story takes place. Moondance visits his grave to "speak with" him, sharing her sorrows and her joys as she must have when he was alive. She also finds solace in a cherished old photograph and other mementos. Her mother takes a few tentative steps toward building a relationship with a suitor and discusses it frankly with her daughter.

Sexual Content

Violence

A few moments of scary music as a shadowy figure moves through the woods.

Social Behavior

Finding your own specialness is a sure-fire way of coping with peer pressure. Hard work and enthusiasm are their own rewards and can result in success, too. There are lots of adults, including parents and community members, who will listen to the needs of kids and help them. Asking for what you want is important.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Character pours himself a glass of whiskey from a bottle in a desk drawer, then drinks it. The second time, he discards the bottle and its contents.
