Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Entertainment News


Rated PG-13 for substance abuse, strong language, suggestive material and smoking.

What it’s about: A wild, manic, chopped-and-screwed biopic of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

The kid attractor factor: The musical element, and perhaps star Austin Butler will draw younger audiences.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Capitalism and fame are a combination destined to chew you up and spit you out.

Violence: None of note, some scenes of wild teens nearly rioting, references to political assassinations.


Language: Some swearing

Sex: Suggestive moments and references.

Drugs: Use of pills, uppers, downers, smoking, drinking and other substances.

Parents’ advisory: This exuberant celebration of Elvis and his career goes to some dark places, but overall, it's a fitting tribute to the star. OK for older kids and teens.
