Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Big Stone Gap is a romantic comedy starring Ashley Judd that's focused on life in a Virginia coal-mining town in the late 1970s. Overall this story about living life and pursuing your dreams (fi you can figure out what they are) is quite mild: Expect some sexual innuendo (including speculation about a character's sexual preferences) and kissing and very infrequent swearing (including "ass" and "screw"). Some characters smoke cigarettes and drink, including a weeding scene in which a bride and groom are almost too wasted to make it down the aisle.
A couple kisses passionately; one partner discusses her desire to "make love to that man." A long-term relationship becomes a source of gossip because the man "wants to wait," sparking some veiled references to his sexual preferences.
Very infrequent swearing includes "ass" and "screw."
It's never too late to chase your dreams.
