Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Grace Unplugged is a faith-based family drama about an 18-year-old who runs away to Los Angeles to become a pop star against the express wishes of her Christian parents. It's a story about finding your own way back to you family and God, and it contains some heavy subject matter (references to sex, fake celebrity romances, and artistic compromises), but should be fine for mature tweens and teens. Christian parents will enjoy seeing this movie with their adolescent kids. Families who aren't Christian may still appreciate the feel-good message of honoring your parents and staying true to your beliefs (whatever they might be).
A father tries to give his 18-year-old daughter a purity ring symbolizing abstinence, but she angrily asks if he thinks she's "going to sleep around." Grace starts dating a young TV star who invites her to his place and tells a friend on the phone he's about "to seal the deal" with her. A stylist gives Grace lingerie and jokes that the gift is really for her boyfriend. A music producer asks Grace to sing a song about a one-night stand. Eventually Grace starts caring about another guy, and there is some hand-holding and a chaste kiss.
Grace can be rude to her father and yells at him. There's a lot of yelling throughout the movie.
The most important message, beyond the religious one about the importance of faith, is the idea that a parent's love is unconditional, and that doing the right thing reaps rewards in the long run.
