Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Mothers and Daughters follows several vaguely connected storylines about (no surprise) mother-daughter relationships that have varying levels of conflict and harmony. The all-star (if hardly diverse) cast includes Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, Selma Blair, Christina Ricci, Courteney Cox, and Mira Sorvino. While some scenes do show characters smoking pot (medicinally) and getting drunk, there's not too much swearing ("hell," "goddammit") or sex (kissing). But there is a scene in which a very drunk girl is almost taken advantage of by a predatory man, as well as a storyline that centers around an unplanned pregnancy and a woman who considers getting an abortion. Ultimately, the message is that the bond between mothers and daughters is strong and profound and can withstand even intense conflict.
Kissing. An unexpected pregnancy.
Heated arguments. One scene shows an encounter that comes close to sexual assault; a very drunk girl is almost taken advantage of by a predatory man, but the encounter is disrupted before anything serious takes place.
Infrequent language includes "hell," "bastard" and "goddammit."
The bond between mothers and daughters is strong and profound and can withstand even intense conflict.
Almost every character seems to have an iPhone or a Mac laptop, and some have both. Several conversations take place via FaceTime on people's computers.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Social drinking. A minor character smokes weed for medical reasons. One scene at a bar shows people getting very drunk, including a character who ends up passing out.
