What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Pope Francis: A Man of His Word is a documentary directed by Wim Wenders that features explanations from the pontiff about his thinking on several topics, including poverty, the environment, and the refugee crisis. While there's no sex, strong language, or drug use in the film, it does have images of real-world suffering that might upset younger/more sensitive viewers, including some of the Holocaust, very sick children in a hospital, and extreme poverty. Although he's the leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis' statements in the film aren't dogmatic in a religious sense; in fact, much of what he preaches is tolerance and inclusion -- including of other faiths. Some of the pope's words are translated into English as he speaks, while others are subtitled, making it easier to follow for kids who are old enough to read.
