Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Elsa & Fred traces the burgeoning relationship between two senior citizens who become neighbors. Fred is bitter for having been recently widowed, while Elsa is happy-go-lucky come to life. The film explores love at an age often ignored by other movies; while the content is very mild, tweens and even teens aren't likely to be too interested. There are some chaste kisses, and the main characters are shown waking up together. A few scenes show adults drinking, mostly with meals, and profanity is infrequent -- though there is one vehement "f--k" in a moment of stress. Elsa is no stranger to lying, and some of her activities actually veer into illegal territor -- though Fred seems to find it endearing.
