Awakenings is one of my favorite films. With stellar deliveries from film legends Robert De Niro and Robin Williams, smart, touching, and believable dialogue, this movie will not disappoint artistically. The only reason the movie received a PG-13 rating is because of one f-word and the content, which, while not inappropriate, is certainly not for young audiences. Anyone too young would not be entertained by this film, which includes themes such as despair, hope, perseverance, and humanity's frailty. In conclusion, it's a moving, powerful story, and a must-see.
