Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has some social drinking, strong language, and discussions of a sexual nature. This is a biopic of the early life of future Communist guerilla leader Ernesto "Che" Guevara, but impressionable youths aren't too likely to convert to Marxism solely by watching -- if they're interested at all (unless your kids have a deep interest in the subject already or love polishing up their Spanish-language skills, they probably won't have much interest).
- Sexual Content
- Nothing really shown, but much-discussed (including a heavily-coded negotiation with a prostitute).
- None, except for a near-brawl, avoided by the fleeing heroes.
- Some very raw language.
- Social Behavior
- Not applicable
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Social drinking, one supporting character gets drunk.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
