Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Coming Home for Christmas features estranged sisters trying to reunite their newly separated parents. A minor character's father died overseas in combat and is referenced a few times. The film is overwhelmingly family-friendly, focusing on the importance of healing family conflicts during the holidays, and the idea that family can take many shapes. There's a particular emphasis on singing and music, and though the likelihood of reuniting separated parents in reality is low and may be misleading for kids of parents going through a separation, it's treated in a lighthearted manner here.
