This is your typical "Chick flick, feel good, coming of age" movie. But...I like it. Good for most children, as well, I'd say from ages 10 and up. There is some sexuality in the movie. Mainly vauge references, though there are 2 sex scenes. Neither of wich you see much. In one you see nothing at all, in another you see Winona Ryders leg and thigh. You also see Winona Ryder in her bra twice.
From the back of the movie:
Cher is "Magical [and] electric" (The Hollywood Reporter), Winona Ryder "enchanting and funny" (The New York Times) and Christina Ricci "Adorable and engaging" (Variety) in this hilarious and heartwarming portrait of a 1960's single-parent family trying to adjust to each other's growing independnce. Charlotte (Ryder) is an adolescent girl torn between her blossoming passions for a handsome caretaker (Michael Schoeffling)...and her desire to be a nun (a tough calling for a girl who's Jewish). Complicating her already orecarious teen angst is a little sister (Ricci), a determined would-be swimmer she affectionately calls "Fishhead," and their mother (Cher), a non-traditional, sexy, flamboyant woman who relocates every time she causes a hint of scandal--which is often. But even as their personal styles clash, these three incredibly different individuals begin to see that nothing-not even a life-threatening tragedy- can tear apart the bonds of family.
