Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Forget Me Not is a British romantic drama that includes strong language, sexual acts, and multiple references to suicide. Will (Tobias Menzies) and Eve (Genevieve O'Reilly) are two strangers who spend 24 hours together walking the streets of London. The two discuss serious subjects, such as death and suicide, with Will considering taking his life on a number of occasions. Alzheimer's and dementia are also referenced in upsetting scenes. Strong language is only occasional, but does include "f---ing" and "s--t." Characters engage in sexual activity -- though never have intercourse -- with some partial nudity. Virginity and underage sex are also discussed. Both smoking and drinking feature on several occasions with some drunkenness depicted, including a drunk and abusive man trying to attack Eve. While there are many adult themes, the movie is essentially a romance about two characters struggling to connect and find solace in each other.

Is It Any Good?
Similarly to Richard Linklater's Before trilogy, this 24-hour romance is as much a love letter to the stunning city backdrops as it is to the two characters at its heart. Considering its low budget, director duo Alexander Holt and Lance Roehrig's first feature film provides some pretty spectacular cityscapes and, despite the slightly wordy script, strong chemistry between lead actors Menzies and O'Reilly.
Both characters are beautifully complex -- full of contradictions and all the more watchable for it. Despair, hope, warmth, connection, and a touch of existential crisis keep them awake and forging forward through the night and the following day. Simultaneously thrust together and torn apart, the pair are ultimately drawn together in search of something they're not sure really exists.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
