Powerful, Entertaining film, better for teens/mature tweens

This Feel-good/Music Drama, has lots of positive messages, about bravery, love and perseverance. Well, Parents, note somethings done: expect frequent/strong language of s--t, sh---y, f--k, d--k, hell and damn. Also lots of drinking, underage drinking, to excess and drunkenness. Some mild violence includes police arresting a 17 year old's mother, but nothing to worry about. Yellow Rose is an iffy choice for children under the age of 13.

Don't miss it!

A wonderful film - moving, inspirational, full of real life characters, with a refreshing absence of cheap smut, sex and language which is incongruous the lives of normal people.
