CommentsThe romantic comedy “Can You Keep A Secret?” is set in New York in the present day. The film explores themes of a woman’s romantic relationship with her boss, finding love and romance, deserving love from oneself and other’s, corporate life, the intricacies of dating, power dynamics at work which resemble bullying, struggle to find purpose in life, keeping secrets, heartbreak with subthemes of office politics, marketing and branding and friendship. Themes exploring relationship difficulties and hearbreak, office politics and workplace bullying, and betrayal are complex and mature and may be confusing for cognitively immature young viewers. Themes are presented light-heartedly and humorously, but despite the entertainment value resulting from the comedy, and presence of positive themes dealing with friendship, self-acceptance, forgiveness and the positive resolution with the couple ending up happily ever after, some of the humour is of a more mature nature. For examples, the presentation of themes often include fairly explicit sexual references and visual presentations of sexual conduct which may prematurely expose sexually and cognitively immature viewers under the age of 16 years to adult experiences, and therefore cause moral harm.
