Thanks to a deal between Sony Pictures and Netflix, users of the streaming service get to enjoy the wonderful offerings from the studio! In 2021, the two made an agreement for Netflix to be the first streaming home of Sony movies. And the latest one being added is Love Again! Is the rom-com okay for kids to watch?

The film, starring Outlander‘s Sam Heughan, Citadel actress Priyanka Chopra, and music legend Celine Dion, officially arrives on the streamer on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2023. The actor takes on the role of Rob, with Chopra playing his onscreen love interest Mira. Dion plays her wonderful self in the movie!

Whether you’ve seen it on the big screen or you were waiting for its streaming release, the day is almost here! And even though it’s a rom-com, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s appropriate for kids to watch. So what’s the age rating? We’ve got the answer for you below!

Love Again parents guide and age rating

Love Again is rated PG-13 for some sexual material and some strong language, per the Motion Picture Association. This age rating means parents are strongly cautioned, and the material in the movie isn’t appropriate for those under 13 years of age.

So if your preteens are excited to see the film, we suggest having a parent or adult present with them. Perhaps you can watch it first yourself to make sure you’re comfortable with the younger ones watching the film. When you’re playing out a story about adults, there’s bound to be some mature content.

The romantic comedy is centered around children’s author and illustrator Mira who is still grieving the loss of her fiancé. To deal with missing him, she continues to send text messages to his phone. But unknown to Mira, the number has been reassigned. Can you guess who is receiving them now? Rob of course! The music journalist and romantic skeptic begins falling for her, without even having met Mira. Celine Dion, the queen of love songs, helps lead him on this romantic journey as Rob writes a profile on the singer. But when they do meet, will Rob tell Mira the truth about getting her texts?

Love Again begins streaming Saturday, Sept. 2, 2023 on Netflix.
