Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this romance is fraught with lies, gossip, and manipulation, but very little in the way of sex or violence. Two people fall and injure themselves seriously -- one, a child and one a teenage girl. The child falls off-screen and is carried limply back to his home. The teen falls on-screen and appears for a moment to have died.
Mr. Elliot implies that Sir Walter Elliott and Mrs. Shaw are having an affair. Anne and Fredrick kiss once.
One of Mary's children has a serious fall from a tree (off-screen) and there's some discussion about whether his spine has been affected. Louisa falls off a wall and seriously injures herself. For a moment, it looks as if she's died.
A tremendous amount of back-stabbing, gossiping, conniving, and manipulating is done by most characters. But Anne is a great female role model, strong in her convictions, smart, well-read, and determined to follow her heart, even if it goes against her family.
