This is a Mature but worthy movie

In this movie it teaches kids to learn about the world, and how everything isn’t always great for everyone and to appreciate what you have. There is one Nudity part but she is half covered and I’m an autism teacher but I would allow my granddaughter that is young to watch this. If you truly think your son/daughter is a stupid immature baby. Then they should not be able to watch this but if you trust them to be a smart, and responsible then there is no problem here.

13 years old? Seriously?

Anyone who would let their child watch a movie of this nature with full frontal female nudity is crazy! This woman is striped on stage in front of a full audience and basically devoured by vampires. It’s a male-dominated, objectification of women, disturbing scene. The rest of the movie is filled with exaggerated acting.

This title has:

Too much sex
