What’s it about?
Wren is coping with losing her Dad a year ago and her Mum is now going out with a 26 year old guy. Her younger brother Albert has stopped talking and just eats sweets all day. Things start to look up when Riley, the coolest guy at school invites her to a Halloween party. This doesn’t happen though because her Mum has to go out and she has to stay home to look after Albert. Wren decides to take Albert out trick or treating but he gets lost. Of course Wren starts to panic and gets her friends to help look for him. Albert meanwhile is having a good time meeting lots of colourful people but also getting into tricky situations.
What to look out for
There’s quite a bit of violence and content in this movie that could upset younger kids such as:
- Wren and her family coming to terms with the death of their father.
- Wren and her friends are chased by bullies. They hide in a restaurant and one of Wren’s friends shoots at a bully with her musket gun.
- Albert is shoved to the ground by a man who steals his sweets. Alone, he’s then invited into a car by a man who takes him to a house, locks him in and holds him hostage.
There’s also some scary scenes such as:
- Wren goes into a haunted house and is frightened by scary ghouls and a ghostly lady who jumps out at her.
Moral of the Story
Be true to yourself and stick by your family.
