The pre-World War I setting references the military and the possibility of war, but only as a background element.
One brief passionate kiss between adults. One discussion about adult man fooling around with adult woman.
Background references to war and the military. A few emotionally tense scenes, including parents arguing in front of teen.
With no evidence to support the teen's claim to innocence besides his word, the family sacrifices significant time, effort, and money to uphold his honor. The message that children are to be believed and that their dignity is something worth fighting for is powerful.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Near constant smoking, though in a historical context. The young woman prides herself on "indulging" in smoking cigarettes to prove herself a feminist. Occasional drinking by adults.
