The Post-Gazette reviews movies from a family perspective:
Suitable for: Teens and above.
What you should know: Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are astronauts whose shuttle is destroyed in a devastating accident, forcing them to face the possibility that they will die in space. "Gravity" is available in 2-D and pricier 3-D and IMAX 3-D. See it in a theater with excellent sound and the biggest screen possible, although opt for 2-D if prone to motion sickness. The story addresses such themes as adversity, rebirth and resilience.
Language: One f-word, one use of profanity and about 14 or so milder four-letter words.
Sexual situations and nudity: None.
Violence/scary situations: Tension and scary situations throughout, with images of corpses and a quick but unmistakable look at a man's face with the center missing. There is mention of another accidental death and the prospect of being marooned in space with no contact with Mission Control and perhaps no way to return home.
Drug and alcohol use: Someone appears to take a swig of vodka.
