What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that this version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel is quieter and less splashy than the more recent offering starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and it's also more emotionally distant. There are a few instances of violence that show blood, including a lot of blood spreading in water; a character is briefly shown starting to suck on very bloody fingers; and a man hits a woman, giving her a bloody nose. Sexual content involves mostly unspoken dynamics in adulterous relationships, but characters kiss in several scenes, sometimes passionately but without tongue. Profanity is infrequent and mild, with a few "damns" here and there, but young kids graffiti the word "s--t" onto a bench.
