Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Backwards is a sports drama that's more about a coach's journey than a group of players. Written by and starring a former rower, the movie offers a look at a sport that isn't usually depicted in movies (rowing) and encourages girls to discover their inner athlete. While the content is mild overall -- there's one use of the word "s--t" (as well as some other milder insult language) and a bit of flirting/kissing -- the themes might be a bit too mature (or uninteresting) for the under-10 set.

Sexual Content

Abi and Geoff flirt and eventually kiss.

Violence

Not applicable

Language

One "s--t," plus "stupid," "loser," and other insults like "selfish," "lazy," and "old."

Social Behavior

Discipline and drive are encouraged as part of the competitive spirit needed to be as successful athlete. Strong "women in sports" message revolving around a sport that isn't usually represented in movies: rowing.

Consumerism

One scene in which Tootsie Rolls are shown.
