Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: 5 Flights Up is a bit of a narrative fixer-upper, but when it comes to watching Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman share screen time, you really can't beat the view.

Slow-moving relationship drama with little at stake.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 5 Flights Up centers on a long, happy marriage that's disrupted when the couple decides they must sell the Brooklyn apartment that's been their home for decades. Over the course of a few days, they reminisce, try to plan their future, and second-guess their decisions. They bicker, though the other ways they resolve conflict reveal their strong connection. Expect occasional swearing (including "s--t" and one "f--k"), plus some social drinking. There's also discussion of the hunt for a suspected terrorist; topics including suicide bombings and other related issues. A large painting of a nude woman is seen several times. The film's themes make it a better fit for older teens and adults, though there's little content that makes it inappropriate for younger teens.
