Great film. Contains Sex (and resulting teen pregnancy), some swearing and images of the blitz.

This is a really great film to give kids an idea of family life during the London blitz in world war two. It's heart warming and moving. That said it does contain very obvious references to sex. This went over the head of my child but it would definitely raise questions from a more curious child. A sensitive child might also be upset by the scenes of bombing.

Great messages
Too much sex
