What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Before the Flood is a documentary about Earth's climate crisis. It follows U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio as he travels the world, looking into various problems and possible solutions. The movie offers quite a bit of information that's both alarming and hopeful. DiCaprio is portrayed as an empathetic, curious role model who's helping to lead the world in the fight to save the future. Expect some disturbing imagery related to the planet's possible future; discussions of what could happen -- and is already happening -- to the planet could upset younger viewers. There's also a bit of strong language, including "ass," "son of a bitch," and "damn."
