Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Love Is Strange is a touching, beautiful -- if sometimes melancholy -- drama about an older gay couple facing new challenges after they get married and one of them subsequently loses his job. Their relationship is inspiring and their friends and relatives are supportive, but younger teens may not be able to wrap their heads around the couple's real-estate woes and how their displacement in turn displaces everyone else and destabilizes them individually. Expect some discrimination toward the central characters, some social drinking, a little smoking, and strong language, including "s--t" and "f--k." Ben and George are affectionate with each other, kissing and embracing.

Sexual Content

A married couple kisses and hugs tenderly. Some discussion of past infidelities.


A teenager yells at his parents out of frustration.


Everything from "bloody" to "s--t" to "motherf--ker," but use isn't constant.

Social Behavior

Love matters above all and can see us through many difficulties. Communication is key to a great relationship, and commitment is essential to a long-standing one.


Fairly frequent brand sightings and label-dropping, including Apple, Netflix, iTunes, YouTube, and Game of Thrones.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking by adults at parties and restaurants. One character smokes.
