It seems that the main character Veronica Sawyer (played by Melanie Field) is a bit depressed. Her suicidal boyfriend blew up the school and she faces judgmental cliques everywhere she goes to school. She eventually meets JD, who gives her advice on how to kill herself but promises her that he can make her murder look like a suicide so she won’t be blamed. It’s sort of a twisted love story mixed in with death and deceit, but not without its humor.
There’s plenty of dark humor in the film as well, which helps to keep it light even though you know there are some pretty heavy things going on in it. The character of JD is always joking around and causing trouble with his friends. He also helps Veronica get away from her troubles, and he even tells her his secrets, which may just make her start a new school where she can feel normal again. Veronica is the main character in this film but she doesn’t have much in the way of friends. She’s usually alone, which causes her to be depressed, which causes her to think about suicide more often.
How will this movie affect you?
The movie will incite a lot of curiosity in people and what it may be like to exist in the unusual and different world of high school. The movie will be dark, with a very shocking twist at the end. It will certainly open up many conversations in the public arena, such as bullying, teen suicide, sexual assault, and school violence.
Can children watch this movie?
Heathers the Musical movie has several frank and dark topics such as bullying, suicide, sexual assault, and school violence. The show emphasizes the importance of communication, empathy, and understanding between teenagers at all stages of life. Now you know that this is not a film designed for children to watch. It is for teens/young adults who are fully aware of life’s hardships and who are willing to laugh about them as well as take them seriously. Heathers stresses that young people are already dealing with similar issues and that teenagers need to have the information available to help them through difficult times in their lives.
