Common Sense Note

Although sexual content doesn't include much more than kissing (both in Doris' daydreams and seen around her), there's a lot of strong language (especially "f--k," "f--king," and "s--t") and some mature themes related to May-December romances, cyberstalking (Doris creates a fake Facebook account to follow and friend her crush), hoarding, grief, and unhealthy family dynamics. That said, the movie does depict the way intergenerational bonds form and how some friendships can transcend age.
