What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Little is a comedy about a woman who wakes up in the body of her teen self. Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall) is a demanding, high-powered executive who's making life miserable for her assistant. April (Issa Rae). Just when April can't take it any longer, a strange phenomenon causes Jordan to wake up in a 13-year-old's body. Now April is the only ally young Jordan (Marsai Martin) has as she balances an important work presentation with the awkwardness of being an adult in middle school. (Martin, the movie's young star, is also Hollywood's youngest-ever producer.) This age-swapped re-imagining of the movie Big will likely have uplifting messages but also some edgy content. Expect some swearing, sexual references and situations, as well as comic violence, including spanking.
