Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's nothing really objectionable for younger kids in this movie, but the plot may be too sophisticated for them to follow, and the film features some emotional intensity. Characters drink wine at dinner and on social occasions; during one dinner, an older couple drinks wine and acts intoxicated as they giggle and gossip and make jokes at the expense of one of the characters. There also are tame discussions of characters who leave town when their lovers become pregnant. In one scene, a female dog is referred to as a "bitch."

Sexual Content

Tame discussions of characters who leave town when their lovers become pregnant. Intense discussions of poetic love, exemplified in Shakespeare's sonnets and in the intensity of the character Marianne.

Social Behavior

The importance of family is shown through example, as the sisters face numerous crises of the heart. Discretion is shown to be more favorable than gossip, as the evils of gossip are shown through the behavior of some of the characters. The powerful nature of love is a strong theme.
