Penelope

Because she was born with the nose of a pig, Penelope's parents (Catherine O'Hara and Richard E. Grant) have kept her in seclusion. It is a reversible curse - on condition of finding a man who will love her despite her face. However, as the young woman (Christina Ricci) begins looking for a suitor, she discovers most people in the real world are quick to judge by appearances. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Penelope Rated PG?


After her birth, Penelope’s mother becomes obsessive about protecting her daughter from outsiders. In one case, she hits a reporter in the face, causing him to lose an eye. She also fakes the death of her child. When suitors do show up on the scene, they often jump out of a second story window in order to get away from Penelope. One woman commits suicide after being rejected by a lover. Compulsive gambling, frequent alcohol use (sometimes to the point of drunkenness), smoking and lying are all depicted in this script. Some female cleavage, kissing and brief sexual innuendos are included, along with several mild vulgarities and profanities.
