Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that on the most superficial level, the movie's plot revolves a girl losing her virginity. Lots of sex is shown on screen (without nudity), and there's a skinny dipping scene. Characters drink and smoke marijuana and cigarettes. For families who are comfortable discussing sex and relationships, this moving can be a good one to watch with teen girls who are on the cusp of sexual freedom, since it begs the question of what attracts people to each other.
