Cabaret

1972 PG 2h 8m Blu-ray / DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
A British scribe (Michael York) and his comrades -- including a flamboyant American nightclub entertainer named Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) -- chronicle the debauchery and turbulence of prewar Berlin in director Bob Fosse's big-screen adaptation of a musical classic. Existing in a morally ambiguous void, the characters doggedly maintain their facades as the world outside the cabaret gears for war.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Academy-Award-winning musical is chock full of sexual innuendo and frank talk about casual sex, both hetero- and homosexual. Main characters smoke and drink throughout the film while living decadent, if impoverished, lives. The movie is set against the backdrop of the Nazis' rise to power in Germany, with a couple scenes of violence related to Nazi conflicts. The main character has an abortion.

Sexual Content

Plenty of discussion about sex -- Bowles talks about how she has frequent casual sex, another character describes an aggressive sexual encounter, brief talk about homosexual relations. A few post-coital scenes. Some kissing. The main character has an abortion.

Violence

A few violent scenes -- one of a man getting beaten up and left unconscious, one of a crime scene where a man appears dead with blood around him, and one tussle between a main character and some Nazis that results in a bruised face.

Language

Moderate frequency of swear words like "bastard," "goddamnit," "screw," and "s--t."

Social Behavior

The messages are complicated, but involve the importance of love and companionship, as well as the incredible human capacity for endurance.

Consumerism

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Frequent smoking and drinking, sometimes to excess and sometimes with the express intent to reduce anxiety.
