What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Only the Brave is an intense but uneven drama about the real-life Granite Mountain Hotshots, a team of elite firefighters from Arizona who faced a deadly wildfire in June 2013, demonstrating courage, perseverance, and teamwork in the process. The main concern for younger viewers is the peril of the fast-moving fires, but though there are deaths, they're not shown on-screen. There's also a snake bite and a couple of fights. Characters swear fairly frequently (including a couple uses of "f--k," "s--t," "ass," and more) and talk roughly but non-graphically about sex; they also rip into each other for fun. Drug use is a plot element -- characters work hard to overcome addiction, and drug use is clearly frowned upon -- and what looks like crack is smoked in one scene. There's also some drinking, a brief moment of nonsexual male partial nudity (bare bottoms), and a romantic (but not graphic) bathtub scene. Josh Brolin and Miles Teller co-star.
