Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the 15-year-old main character in this '70s-set sports drama is a strong heroine who acts out after one of her family members dies early in the film (a loss that may be upsetting for sensitive kids). She sneaks out of the house, steals her mother's car, shoplifts, and makes out with a guy she met at a bar. She also does a good deal of lying and teenage sulking until her father -- who, along with her brothers, says a lot of sexist things to her -- takes her seriously. Language includes "s--t" and "bastards," as well as some derogatory terms for lesbians. Some underage smoking, as well as a fair amount of rough soccer action (Gracie is knocked down, punched in the face, etc.).

Sexual Content

Gracie kisses and makes out with Kyle. She also makes out with a stranger she meets at a bar who knows she's underage.


A main character dies in an off-screen car crash. Gracie is the object of a lot of soccer-field violence, including getting punched in the face, knocked down, tripped, and tackled.


Language includes "s--t," "hell," "bastards," damn," "dyke," and "lesbo."

Social Behavior

After a family tragedy, Gracie acts out, sneaking out of the house to go on dates, stealing the family car to drive to the shore and meet older boys, shoplifting, etc. There's also a lot of sexist language, including overtly diminishing Gracie's worth and her ability to play sports as well as any boys. But she's a strong heroine with a fierce resolve to achieve her goal.


Gatorade is prominently featured at the beginning of the movie.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Gracie and her friends smoke cigarettes and go to bars, but they aren't shown drinking.
