Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Magic in the Moonlight sticks pretty closely to the typical Woody Allen comedic formula, with an incongruous pairing and characters tossing bon mots and waxing philosophical in a lovely location (this time, the south of France in the 1920s). Teens may be intrigued by the casting of Emma Stone, but some of the themes/plot threads -- the existence of God and an afterlife, the possibility of true love -- are a little mature (and likely uninteresting) for younger viewers. There's little mild swearing ("hell") and some sharp insults. Expect period accurate smoking and drinking, some kisses, and a suggestive comment or two. The main character, a Caucasian man, performs using a broad, dated stereotypically Asian persona, a practice that would be seen as inappropriate today but was in line with 1920s trends.

Sexual Content

A few kisses and a suggestive comment.

Violence

A mild-mannered confrontation between friends is as heated as it gets.

Language

Some mild insults, including "wretch" and "moron." Also "hell."

Social Behavior

Sometimes the best things in life are those you can neither see nor explain.

Consumerism

Though no labels are seen, there's some discussion about what money can buy, and a rich young man shops often for his fiancee, showing off his wealth.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Period-accurate smoking. Adult characters drink cocktails in social settings.
