Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Tuck Everlasting, a Disney film about a teen girl who meets a family who is immortal after drinking from a fountain of youth on their property, raises profound questions about life and death, the cycle of life, and aging. Besides the heady subject matter, there are some violent altercations of characters being shot at or hit in the head with rifles. Overall, the film should raise interesting discussions about immortality, life, and how to live.
