Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the Netflix docuseries Sunderland 'Til I Die will appeal to football (soccer) fans, but contains lots of mature content. There's lots of cursing, some drinking, and footage of fans hurling insults, and at times getting violent. Discussions of difficult economic issues, poverty, and other social problems are sometimes topics, too. Logos of sponsor brands like Dafabet and Adidas are prominently featured, and others like Range Rover are visible. The series promotes the Sunderland Football Club, but it also reveals the positive role the Club has had in a struggling community for many years.
Is It Any Good?
This encouraging documentary series follows the day-to-day efforts of a football team that has long been the pride and joy of a hardscrabble working class town that has been plagued with unemployment, poverty, and other hardships. Through footage of meetings, matches, and and interviews, it highlights how the demotion has impacted the overall club, and offers an overview of how they are trying to overcome it.
While the club and its members are a focal point, the Sunderland community plays a major part of this story world. It is through local (and candid) fans that viewers can begin to understand the long-standing passion the club continues to inspire, and how it has served as a positive beacon in their otherwise difficult lives until now. Ultimately, Sunderland 'Til I Die will be appealing to football fans, but the story it tells offers something to those who are not.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
