Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this documentary about the last few turbulent years in the history of the New York Times is rated R primarily for its strong but infrequent language, which includes several uses of "f--k," as well as "s--t" and "p---y." There's some sexual innuendo in the context of a newspaper story, and viewers see some vaguely disturbing YouTube video footage. One reporter is also a recovering drug addict; he talks openly about his past problem. While its content may not be age-appropriate for younger viewers, this dynamic documentary has the power to inspire teens and up to get involved in the exciting business of journalism.

Sexual Content

Some sexual innuendo, in the context of a reporter working on a story.


A couple of YouTube clips depict violence in the Middle East, specifically shootings, as well as some other vaguely disturbing imagery. The footage is brief and blurry, and without spoken descriptions, viewers likely wouldn't be able to tell what was being shown.


Language isn't constant, but one scene in particular contains many uses of "f--k." That word also appears a few more times throughout the rest of the movie; others include "hell," "goddamn," "s--t," and "p--y."

Social Behavior

Several big thinkers try to wrestle with the question of what will happen to the newspaper business in general and the New York Times in particular; it's an unanswerable question, but the reporters at the Times work hard to overcome the depressing odds and solve these problems.
