'Good Hair' (2009)

Funny, smart documentary is OK for older teens.

Age: 14+

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this Chris Rock documentary includes some mature themes related to race, femininity, and class. There's a fair amount of strong language, conversations about how hair affects sexual relationships, and consumerism (mostly hair-product brands). Kids will see two approaches, African-American celebrities like Eve, Raven Symone, and Nia Long are straight up about masking their natural hair with expensive weaves, while a few outspoken women rage against the "slavery" of a straightening regime and sport their natural locks (or, in one case, a bald head). —Common Sense Media (Photo: Roadside Attractions)
