Such food for thought

This movie brings out universally relatable themes through the life of the protagonist, Pete. It forms a great basis for later discussion on these issues. The themes are mature so the movie is appropriate for older teens. Unfortunately, it does have 2 or 3 scenes where there is nudity and/or kissing and other forms of intimacy. Sad because they add absolutely no value to the plot and make an otherwise excellent movie problematic.
