Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this documentary explores the different ways that people connect around the world -- and the impact that these connections have on a global scale. It taps into issues like waste, the environment, war, and illness. The death of a parent and a difficult pregnancy are also major themes. Archival footage and Web images include references to political leaders, pop culture icons, and other recognizable people, as well as brief images of things like guns, cannons, and animated nudity. While the content overall isn't too iffy, chances are the subject matter and content won't be of interest to younger kids. References are made to being transgendered.

Sexual Content

Brief images of animated nude images, taken from medical and artistic pictures of both men and women.

Violence

War is discussed; images of guns and cannons being shot. A brief comedy scene shows a woman slapping someone's face.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

The movie explores the various ways in which human behavior and technology can potentially change the way we connect on a global scale -- and the positive and negative consequences of those connections. The cancer-related death of a parent and a difficult pregnancy are also major themes.

Consumerism

Sony computers are occasionally visible. Books written and talks given by author Leonard Shlain are prominently featured.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Smoking is visible. The drug trade is briefly discussed.
