I have heard my family talk about this movie, and by getting more information from the review I gather that this movie is intended for adults. I'm pretty sure this was even originally rated NC-17. I think it's a good story, but it would be better to stick with the book. Even the book itself would probably be barely appropriate for 16/17+. First of all, viewing sexual assaults is disturbing to everyone, especially young teenagers. Second of all, this movie contains disturbing and graphic violence, which in this case is probably not suitable for anyone under 17. Third of all, this movie contains sex and nudity, and depending on the context is usually not suitable for anyone under 17 or 18. Now, all of this puts together, gives you a very adult, and mature movie, so I will have to rate this 18+.
