What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Yellow Rose is a poignant drama about a Filipina American teenager whose dreams of becoming a country music singer seem thwarted when her undocumented mother is detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Starring acclaimed Broadway actress Eva Noblezada as main character Rose, Tony Award winner Lea Salonga as her aunt, and real-life country singer Dale Watson as himself, the movie is a powerful own-voices endeavor, written and directed by Filipina American filmmaker Diane Paragas, who based the screenplay on some of her own experiences. Expect occasional strong language (mostly "s--t"), as well as a couple of kisses, some cigarette smoking, and a few scenes of excess drinking (by both underage and adult characters). ICE agents detain people in fraught and upsetting moments, and prison-like detainment facilities and treatment are depicted. The movie promotes perseverance, empathy, and compassion, and families who watch with their teens will have plenty to discuss, from immigration policies to racism to country music.
