Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Natalie's Rose revolves around the death of a mother and the grieving husband and daughter she leaves behind, and this is a genuine tearjerker. The teenage girl assumes God is behind her loss and can't understand why she was dealt such a terrible hand. The movie is not explicitly Christian, but a belief in an all-knowing and highly interactive God is assumed. Religious/supernatural answers are provided in the form of gauzy ghosts, glowing angels, a disappearing horse, and an old rose that will not wilt. A man falls off a horse and gets hit on the head ,but the violence is mostly offscreen, such as, for example, when a fatal car crash is described.
