What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Playroom is an unnerving look at the "Me Decade," aka the 1970s, when people were encouraged to do whatever they wanted, even if they caused great harm to those around them. Over the course of one tumultuous night, teenage Maggie watches over her three younger siblings while her parents host another couple for a grown-up evening of drinking, flirting, and possibly more risque behavior -- which could threaten their family. A teen girl is shown topless in a scene in which she has sex for the first time, and there's kissing and fondling in other scenes as well. There are also several intense and very realistic arguments, as well as plenty of drinking and (era-accurate) smoking. Expect some swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t") during the characters' highly emotional conflicts.
