BLACK NATIVITY is a drama about a teenaged boy who is sent to live with his grandparents at Christmas, after his mother is evicted from their home. It is rated PG for mild threat and very mild language.

In one scene the boy attempts to hold up a pawn shop with a gun, but is prevented from completing the robbery when a policeman arrives and pulls his own gun on the boy. There is a brief stand-off as both characters aim their guns at one another.

The film also contains some very mild bad language (eg 'damn', 'hell', 'butt' and 'scumbag'). In addition, there is a reference to drugs when a man warns the young boy about his conduct, telling him not to act like a 'crackhead'.

PG stands for Parental Guidance. A PG film should not disturb a child aged around eight or older. However, parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.
