What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Country Girl is a slow-paced, heavy drama. Content-wise, there's no reason to pause it if tweens and under wander in, but the adult characters and mature themes make it best for older kids. One of the three main characters is an alcoholic and his problems are explored in detail. Flashbacks to the death of a toddler don't show anything graphic, but there are sound effects and we see the father's reaction to the accident. Two main characters frequently smoke and one of them chain smokes. Lots of background smoking, too. There's one deep kiss and one quick one. It ends on a hopeful note, but heavy themes, like how hard it is just getting through life and helping vs. enabling, won't hold kids' interest. Fans of acting and of Old Hollywood will enjoy watching two legends play very different roles than they usually did.
