Sex & Nudity

  • One use of 'To hell with it'.
  • Damn and hell are both used twice. One instance of "Lord" as an exclamation. Also, G*ddamn is used once.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Mrs Travers takes several bottles of pills out of her bag.
  • A few characters are seen casually drinking a couple of times.
  • Walt is seen putting out a cigarette, saying that he 'doesn't wish to encourage bad habits'.
  • A lot of the film is centered around the main character's past with her alcoholic father. He seems to be a depressive who can't live without drinking. When he is sick he calls for his daughter to get him a bottle of liquor. Her mother later gets angry at her for this.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A drunken man falls off of a stage
  • Helen's mother attempts to commit suicide by drowning in a lake. When her daughter calls for her, it is almost as if she can't hear her. Her daughter follows her into the lake and it is not until Helen taps her that she is able to come back to reality and not continue to attempt suicide.
  • A man coughs blood onto a handkerchief a few times.
  • A young girl sees her dead father.
  • The scene where a little girl sees her father get angry at work is upsetting.
  • In the end of the film at the premiere, P.L. Travers breaks down crying when she sees George Banks' redemption. Although it's depicted dramatically, it actually reveals a powerful personal significance for her.
