|Comments||Note: contains spoilers.- Ed. The material contains complex and mature psychological themes, present in a the context of a crime mystery drama which exploring themes of disappearance, babysitting, crime investigation, insurance fraud, murder, secrets, deception, thievery, manipulation, single parenting, incest, truth versus lies, food blogging, death, love relationships, romance, criminal activities, friendships, finding the truth, betrayal, stalking, psychotic behaviour, mystery, receiving threats, forming an alliance, framing and confessions. The psychological central themes of psychotic personalities, manipulation, murder, lies and the immorality of incest are likely to be disturbing, harmful, distressing and inappropriate for the cognitive development of children under 16 who may find themes confusing and difficult to comprehend. The theme of incest is more isolated in the film but rather used to resolve certain plots. Incest doesn't fall within the XX category of Section 18 (3) (b) (ii) in the Films and Publications Act of 1996, as amended, because judged within context, the film and storyline of the scene is presented within artistic and dramatic merits. Furthermore incest is evidently disregarded and not normalised as Stephanie totally regrets sleeping with the half brother that she kept it a secret for so many years. |
