Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this coming-of-age dramedy based on a 2008 novel by Joe Dunthorne, which is set in Wales in the 1980s, is heavy on language (including "f--k" and "s--t") and sexual innuendo/talk; most of these characters have sex on the brain throughout the story, although there's almost no nudity. There are also some moments of bullying. Despite its playful nature, the movie actually deals with some strong issues, such as broken hearts and a couple's struggle to save a troubled marriage.

Sexual Content

The characters are almost constantly thinking about sex or talking in heavy sexual innuendo. The hero wants to have sex with his girlfriend and spends a great deal of time monitoring his parents' sex life. Lots of teen kissing. One scene shows a girl ducking out of sight to give a man oral sex. Also other images of implied sex, and a mother talks in front of her son about giving a "hand job."

Violence

A fight at school is shown, though the final blow is delivered off screen. The hero winds up with blood on his face. Some bullying.

Language

Teens use strong language, including many "f--k"s and lots of sexual innuendo. Other words include "s--t," "c--k," "d--k," "twat," "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation), "gay" (used in a derogatory manner), and "piss."

Social Behavior

As in many coming-of-age movies, the main character goes through a period in which he experiments with iffy behavior before learning something. He spies on his parents, engages in bullying and/or destructive behavior, and eventually winds up broken-hearted and angry. But he does learn from all this, and he overcomes several challenges (although part of his solution is "getting the girl").
