Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This film is a solid look at everyday, ordinary evil. Blood Will Tell effectively plots the road down which seemingly decent people are willing to go when money troubles or other issues stress their usual equilibrium. The movie poses many moral dilemmas. What obligation do we have to help when we see someone in need? Are we implicated if we do nothing? What do long-married people owe each other, if anything? What loyalty do children owe parents if the parents are terrible people? Teens will have much to talk about if they take an interest in the difficulties of the middle-aged couple at the heart of this story.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
