Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Parenting News


Rated R for strong, bloody and disturbing violent content, language throughout, some sexual content and brief graphic nudity.

What it’s about: Two teenage cannibals connect in the 1980s Midwest for a romantic roadtrip that is "Badlands" with flesh-eating.

The kid attractor factor: Teens might be drawn to star Timothée Chalamet, but this is pretty grisly, bloody and mature, not much appeal for kids.

Good lessons/bad lessons: When you find understanding and acceptance in someone else, that is the great love of all.

Violence: Some extreme bloody violence including murder, beating, cannibalism, stabbing, etc.


Language: Swearing throughout

Sex: Some sexual situations/scenes and nudity.

Drugs: Marijuana use

Parents’ advisory: Too mature and bloody for kids. OK for mature teens.
