What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? is a classic 1967 that addresses the complexities of prejudice, racism, and bigotry as it pertains to a young interracial couple approaching their parents for the first time to discuss their impending (and hotly contested) marriage. The main conflict revolves around disagreements between parents and their children about interracial marriage and the generation gap in general. There is one use of the "N" word, spoken in the heat of a passionate diatribe delivered by an African-American maid to the groom-to-be. Outdated terms for African Americans such as "Negro" and "colored" are used. There is occasional profanity such as "bitch" and "hell." Overall, this movie remains relevant as it shows the simplicity and beauty of love amidst the complexities and ugliness of prejudice and bigotry in American society.
