What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Downton Abbey: A New Era is the sequel to 2019's Downton Abbey, itself a spin-off of the popular English TV series. Set in 1928 at the end of the Roaring Twenties, it follows both Lady Mary's (Michelle Dockery) decision to allow a silent film to be shot at Downton and the family's expedition to the French Riviera to visit a villa that Dowager Countess Violet (Maggie Smith) unexpectedly inherits. This film is slightly milder and less violent than the series and the previous movie, but it still deals with mature themes, including the challenges of being gay in the early 20th century, wondering about legitimacy, contemplating cheating on a partner, and dealing with sickness and aging. Language is limited to "bloody," "hell," and "bastard," and the romance is mostly discreet flirting and married couples kissing passionately. Adults drink nightly at meals and parties (wine, champagne, cocktails). Positive messages include the value of compassion and teamwork, evident in the fact that the family and staff are closer than ever, without jealousy or strife. This is a fitting, heartwarming finale to the upstairs/downstairs Downton saga.
