Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Grandma creates an unusual mix of grit and warmth in its story about a grandmother and granddaughter who forge a bond in a crisis. The high school student is pregnant, but she doesn't want to have the baby and needs financial help to address her situation. The topics are tough, but there's also a lot of heart here. Expect lots of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more), non-explicit talk about teen sex, and some drinking/references to getting high -- as well as plenty of affecting moments that show a woman who's desperately trying to connect but not exactly sure how to do so.
Talk about teen sex, but nothing explicit. A man propositions a woman and asks her to sleep with him for old time's sake; in return for a favor, they kiss. One of the characters deals with an unplanned pregnancy.
A woman verbally harangues a cafe worker. She also sometimes yells when she's angry. A grandmother beats up a teenage boy with a stick. The teen, in turn, cusses out the grandmother.
Some characters curse a blue streak, including "f--k," "s--t," "damn," "a--hole," "bitch," etc.
You can learn a lot from people who are of different generations. Also, no matter how stressful relatives can be, as long as there's lots of love, family can also bring respite. Plot/theme note: Sage's plan to terminate her pregnancy is a choice not all viewers will agree with.
A classic Cadillac figures prominently in the film.
