Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, while this film focuses on Peter Rabbit author Beatrix Potter's career and classic children's books, it's really aimed more at adults than kids (and the younger set will probably prefer the books). It deals with some mature themes, including the death of a loved one and disagreements between an adult child and her parents. Beatrix's mother repeatedly denigrates her desire to paint and tell stories; although her father is more encouraging, parents and child also disagree over Beatrix's choice for a husband. When a protagonist dies suddenly (off screen, from an illness), survivors show grief. Some characters drink socially, and one drinks to the point of passing out (this is treated as comedy).

Sexual Content

Discussion of proper behavior for an unmarried woman; some embarrassed dancing and gentle kissing between the central couple.

Violence

Grief is expressed when a central character dies unexpectedly (the death occurs off screen).

Language

Very mild: A background character refers to a "rich bastard," and another declares her own ideas about the joys of single womanhood to be "hogwash."

Social Behavior

Characters are utterly well behaved, though Beatrix does resist her parents' desire that she marry within her class when she falls in love with Norman.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking; one character passes out from drunkenness (this is treated as comedy and subversion of a mother's will).
