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.

Violence

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.

Language

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.

Consumerism

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.
