Rollercoaster of emotions...
This story is pretty intense and not recommended for kids under 17! It deals a lot with race and racial comments, extreme jealousy, relationships and trust but it is so accurate which makes the film so good. It was a mistake when I first viewed it as a tween because not only did I miss the message of the movie, but it was far too violent. Everything here involves teens and their own personal issues with each other. The violence is gory and strong which includes gun use by teens, verbal abuse, a rape scene, suicide, fight scenes with a knife, killings, lying, bullying and peer pressure - Odin is scary when he's mad!. The sexual content is explicit in one sex scene which turns into rape but no nudity. Crude & racial sexual remarks like referring to white women as snakes. A couple lays in bed naked together just talking - no nudity. There is kissing throughout, cheating, a teen tells her father that her relationship with Odin is none of his business after a nasty rumor spreads around, reference to being a sl*t. Very strong language. Teen drinking & drug use (needle shown). NOT for kids, but a really powerful and well-done film for mature minds.
