What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Free Solo is a documentary about climber Alex Honnold, who attempts to scale the 3,000-foot El Capitan in Yosemite, California, without any ropes or safety gear. The actual climb itself is a monumental sequence -- and a testament to perseverance -- but other parts of the movie may not sit well with all viewers, including Alex's distant nature and laid-back attitude about death. Still, the film is worth watching for the amazing finale. Expect to hear discussions about death and see the faces of other climbers who fell and died. Language includes a use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "a--hole," and a few others. Alex is shown being affectionate with his girlfriend and preparing to move in together, but there's nothing remotely graphic. Someone makes a spoken reference to cigarette smoking.
