Blanchett is outstanding in long #MeToo drama with nudity.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Tár is a smart, thought-provoking drama that follows the downfall of an orchestra conductor due to sexual impropriety. It's presented as a biopic, but Lydia Tár (Cate Blanchett) is a fictional character. The story drives home the idea that using a position of leadership and power to lure/force someone into a sexual relationship is deplorable, no matter your gender, sexuality, brilliance, or accomplishments. The film also questions the effect of "cancel culture" on art. Expect lots of details about the orchestral world, including sophisticated vocabulary and monologues about creating symphonic sounds. The two-and-a-half-hour movie builds slowly; some teens may not have the patience to get to the astounding ending. Most of Lydia Tár's problematic behaviors are suggested rather than shown -- i.e., in verbal references to a suicide and love affairs -- which means the content doesn't get especially mature. But there are two instances of nonsexual female nudity, an outburst where punches are thrown, creepy situations, wine drinking, prescription drug abuse, and strong language ("s--t" and "f---ing").
