What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Hail, Cesar! is a star-studded (Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, George Clooney, and more) Coen brothers comedy set in the 1950s that looks at how movie studios tried to hush any hint of scandal, lest gossip and unfavorable news about stars inhibit the bottom line. It's much milder than most of the Coens' other movies, but watch out for some iffy language ("son of a bitch," "hell," etc.), era-accurate smoking, social drinking, and a bit of violence (gunshots in scenes being filmed for a movie, kidnapping, slapping). There's also some cleavage on display and discussion of how to "legitimize" an unmarried, pregnant actress.
