What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Moscow on the Hudson is a 1984 movie in which Robin Williams plays a saxophonist from the Soviet Union who defects to the United States. Despite its '80s Cold War backdrop, this movie, because of its bigger themes of immigrants who want to live in America as they work hard and try to make sense of their new culture while retaining their heritage and traditions, should inspire thought and discussion about immigrants in America, how they have enriched American culture, and how they're often portrayed. There are two nude scenes, one in which a man and woman have sex (female breasts, buttocks), and one in which a woman reclines against a man in a bathtub (female breasts). There's also frequent profanity, including "f--k" and variations, as well as a scene in which a security guard in a department store speaks disparagingly of there being "fags everywhere." There are also scenes of excessive alcohol consumption, including one scene in which two men stumble down the street passing a bottle of booze back and forth while yelling and slurring their speech. In the next scene, one of these characters stumbles and lurches down the sidewalk, and is so drunk, he hallucinates seeing members of his family who live on the other side of the world. He is then mugged at gunpoint by two men who wait for him in the entryway of his apartment.
