Great Movie but Iffy Portrayal of Mental Illness
This is an awesome choice for family movie nights, birthday parties, and other fun occasions, but the portrayal of mental illness is off. If your child is mature for their age and open to discussion, I would say to go ahead with this movie. After watching, it could be necessary to have a talk about Tourette’s Syndrome, germaphobia, and agoraphobia. The representation of these things in the film can be misleading for small children, and could lead to bullying and not excepting other children with these conditions.
