Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this satisfying, emotionally complex drama from acclaimed British filmmaker Mike Leigh (Vera Drake, Happy-Go-Lucky) focuses on the lives and troubles of middle-aged characters (the youngest is 30), so it's unlikely that teens will be very interested. But if they are, there's not too much age-inappropriate content to worry about -- In fact, the only significant concern is the characters' frequent drinking; most is social, but one main character relies on alcohol as somewhat of a crutch. Beyond that, expect a bit of uncomfortable flirting and infrequent strong language (including sparing use of "f--k" and "s--t").

Sexual Content

Adult characters occasionally flirt with one another, but nothing comes of it. No kissing or sex.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

Language includes very infrequent use of "s--t" and "f--k," plus one use of "piss."

Social Behavior

The movie provides a strong example of a positive marriage in Tom and Gerri's solid, loving, supporting relationship. They extend their generosity to many friends and family members, some of whom manage to straighten out their lives and others who need a great deal more help. The couple shows tolerance, empathy, and inclusiveness, and they don't easily give up.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main character and one minor character drink heavily (wine and beer) and to excess; it's not made clear whether they're addicted, but they definitely use alcohol to drown their sorrows. Other characters drink wine socially throughout the movie.
