Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Frances Ha is a sophisticated, black-and-white comedy with some romantic subplots. It's very dialogue and character-based, with a wonderfully cheerful attitude; good things happen to good people, but only after they fail a few times. The biggest issue is language, which is strong and includes "f--k" and "s--t." Sex is also a frequent (and sometimes graphic) topic of discussion, though no nudity or sex acts are actually shown. Characters drink and smoke in a social, background way. There's occasional overindulgence, with effects that are played for laughs. Since the story is about twentysomethings, only older teens may actually be interested.

Sexual Content

No nudity or sex is shown, but sex is a regular topic of discussion; the characters think about it often. Sometimes the talk is fairly graphic.

Violence

Minor arguing between friends from time to time.

Language

Language isn't constant but is fairly strong. "F--k" is used more than a dozen times, and "s--t" is used several times. "C--t," "t-ts," "anal sex," "bitch," "damn," "douche," "Jesus," and "slut" are also used.

Social Behavior

Frances eventually gets herself together and follows her dream, but her moment of change isn't really the focus. Mostly viewers see her misadventures -- i.e. learning what not to do. But she never makes any serious mistakes, other than spending too much money, making social faux pas, and missing good opportunities.

Consumerism

Various logos/brand names are glimpsed in the background, such as Bank of America, Belvedere vodka, etc.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink beer, whiskey, vodka, and other alcoholic beverages and smoke cigarettes in a background way, at home, at clubs, and at dinner parties. Occasionally a character overindulges in alcohol, with results played for humor. There's a running gag about keeping one foot on the floor to prevent "the spins."
