Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Ociee's mother has died. There's a scene where an arsonist sets a house on fire, though its inhabitants survive. There's a slight religious context as Ociee's mother is said to be in heaven, folks attend church on Sunday, and Ociee prays to God to look over her family; these facts fit seamlessly into the context of 19th-century Southern culture.

Sexual Content

Aunt Mamie and Ben exchange a kiss at the end of the movie.

Violence

Ociee has lost her mother, which brings tears to many peoples' eyes. When she is in Asheville, Ociee and her friend Elizabeth fight and roll in the grass, tearing their clothes. They become friends soon after. There is a man who sets a house on fire after threatening a neighborhood family. No one is hurt, though there's a moment where a family member is trapped in the house.

Language

"Durn."

Social Behavior

Ociee has survived a loss, but she is both strong and unafraid. She travels by herself on a train, meeting interesting people along the way. She is awarded a medal of bravery for saving someone's life.

Consumerism

Ociee remarks that her Aunt "sure has a lot of things" in her house. Some of these things are family heirlooms like hand mirrors and china. Aunt Mamie makes pretty dresses for clients.
