Thoughtful, play-based drama examines racism. Age
: 12+ What Parents Should Know
: Parents need to know that this movie, which is based on the landmark play by Lorraine Hansberry, deals with racism in a very honest, often painful way. Mature topics and themes include abortion and poverty; one African-American character demeans himself by playing into white stereotypes of African-Americans and uses the "N" word, but it's understandable within the context of the story. The central family members don't always agree, but in the end they're all working for a better life. Aside from the complex subject matter, the movie has very little iffy content, making it an excellent choice for watching with older tweens and teens. —Common Sense Media
