Smart, timely Woody Allen dramedy has drinking, pills.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Blue Jasmine is a Woody Allen-directed dramedy with themes that may be too mature for tweens and younger. The protagonist is mentally unstable and is falling apart right before viewers' eyes. Characters don't readily empathize with one another, and they sometimes sabotage each other, not to mention themselves. There's lots of drinking and pill-popping -- the main character, Jasmine (aka Jeanette), relies on hard liquor and prescription medication to get through the day. Another character is very angry, bordering on abusive, and there's some strong language ("f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," etc.).
