The Watsons Go to Birmingham

Recommended Age: 12+

Strong Christian, Biblical, moral worldview includes a churchgoing family, children learn values like courage, overcoming fear, standing for others, and moral ideals, and a character is seen reading her Bible; no foul language; light violence includes some footage of Civil Right protests where police use fire hoses to knock people over, a young boy almost drowns, and an explosion is heard and people scramble trying to help, but nothing graphic is shown, though people die; no sexual content, though the grandmother has a man who lives with her; upper male nudity, including young boy swims in his underwear; no alcohol; no smoking or drug use; and, a boy steals, but is reprimanded and young kids experience racism for the first time.
