Ninotchka Review

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

OK for kids 10+

Great, but kids may need historical context.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that kids will need some introduction to the issues behind this enchanting romantic comedy. A few words about the state of the Soviet Union following the revolution and the different ideas of the communists and the capitalists will prepare them.

  • Families can talk about who would have won the jewels if they had gone to court. What is the best argument for each side? What does Swana try to do when she sees Ninotchka at the nightclub? What would you say the "moral" of this little romantic comedy is?
