Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that 5 Flights Up centers on a long, happy marriage that's disrupted when the couple decides they must sell the Brooklyn apartment that's been their home for decades. Over the course of a few days, they reminisce, try to plan their future, and second-guess their decisions. They bicker, though the other ways they resolve conflict reveal their strong connection. Expect occasional swearing (including "s--t" and one "f--k"), plus some social drinking. There's also discussion of the hunt for a suspected terrorist; topics including suicide bombings and other related issues. A large painting of a nude woman is seen several times. The film's themes make it a better fit for older teens and adults, though there's little content that makes it inappropriate for younger teens.

Sexual Content

Tender kiss between husband and wife. A large painting of a nude woman is seen several times.


Bickering between a long-married couple. For most of the movie, the characters are partially transfixed by a city-wide hunt for a terrorist suspect, who's eventually apprehended on live TV. Due to that, there's plenty of talk of bombs, suicide vests, etc. -- but nothing actually happens.


Some swearing, including "prick," "hell," "s--t," "goddamn," and one emotional "f--k you."

Social Behavior

It's important to embrace the changes that life delivers, but it's just as valuable to realize that some things can remain just as they are.


References to well-known brands, including Whole Foods and Apple.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults occasionally drink beer while relaxing at home, meet at a bar for drinks, and have wine with meals.
