Fun and unique but with dark topics
Suicide is a major plot-driver, so be prepared for complicated questions from younger kids. It is a dark comedy, which can also be confusing for the younger ones and definitely not every family's cup of tea. We watched with a 13-year-old and a 10-year-old. Both thought it was a fun movie and liked it. the older one pretty much got it all, although I did have to pause right at the start to explain what the intro narration meant and I had to explain some of the metaphors/expressionism. The younger one was frequently confused but enjoyed the humor and the tone enough to like it even with the confusion. This was one of my favorite movies when I was a teen, and it was fun to see how it was viewed by a new generation.
