Blindspotting is the kind of film that provokes hours of conversation. Only masterpieces and memorably terrible movies do that, and this film is the former.

age 17+


Blindspotting tells the audience a great story about empathy and prejudice. I would say it is a must watch. I am rating is 17+, but believe that anyone 14+ with adult supervision could learn a lesson from this film. This is a film that America needed and helps further discussions on racial issues facing our country. Word of Caution. Strong Language and some violence that might disturb younger viewers.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
