Great Movie

Great Movie! There are no sexual intercourses although there are implacations about sex,In one scene Adele (The Mother) asks if Ann (Her Daughter) if shes been having sex.Then in another scene Ann has a boy come over and tells him to take everything but his underwear off, sex is implied but not shown.The movie has som good messages but not very much positive role models. This is the plot of the movie. When living in Beverly Hills, Adele improvises from day to day, often unable to pay the bills. She wants her daughter to become an actress, but Ann is much more interested in going away to Brown University. After Adele fails in many respects, she accepts her daughter's plans and decides to help her. Anns Plans are obviously to get away from her mother.Ann still loves her mother and soon realizes that her mother would do anything for her. I rate this iffy for 12 and under because of the things that are implied This is from a christian perspective if that helps Great Messages, A Little Too Much Sex Implied for Younger Children Although Younger Children May Not Notice / Understand. 13 And Up

This title has:

Great messages
Too much sex
