I actually think this was pretty responsible. Rather than banning it outright, which would result in kids wanting to rebel even more, she offers it in her home where she can control the amount people drink. Good on ya, Mrs George. You’re a cool mom.
She also offered her daughter a condom when she was hooking up with a guy instead of freaking out and kicking the guy out of the house.
It’s kinda funny how she is simultaneously an out-there parent, yet not a bad one. She might actually understand that her daughter is a anger-ridden teenager who can’t be easily controlled and restricted, so instead of telling her what she can’t do, she tries to guide her to a safer decision. I’m not saying I’m 100% cool with how she executes it, but hey, not a bad parent when you think about it.

Okay, I’m not one to post rants about things but this, this fucking scene right here is easily like the most heart-wrenching, disgusting and fucked up part in this whole movie.
He was the love of her life, she literally gave up everything for him and he killed her for a bit of money. She spent years waiting for someone to find her and ask for her hand in marriage and the one man who actually does tells her that he’s done it by accident. She realizes that she can’t force him to love her and lets him go with the woman he truly cares for.
Emily is dead, at this point she’s realized that there most likely isn’t someone out there for her, not only has she died alone but now she has to spend all of eternity alone. This is a thought she’s had to have entertained more than once but now it’s her reality.
And then here he is, Barkis, the one who took everything away from her, every chance she ever had of happiness, standing in front of her openly mocking the pain she’s been through. Not only that, he says exactly what it is she’s been terrified of hearing; that she will never be loved the way that she wants and it devastates her. You can see it on her face.
