What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Marshall is a biopic about Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman). He eventually became the first African-American U.S. Supreme Court justice, but this movie focuses on one of his earlier court cases. Despite some iffy material, its excellent role models and strong messages about courage, teamwork, and tolerance make it a great movie for families with teens. Expect to see fistfights and beatings, with bloody wounds and bruises. There's also a flashback to a suggested rape, with violent acts against a woman. A fairly mild sex scene includes kissing but no nudity; the main character also kisses his wife and is shown lying with her in bed. Language includes several uses of the "N" word as well as "kike," a use of "f--k," uses of "s--t," and more. Characters drink alcohol in a social context (sometimes to excess), and there's background smoking.
