Unexpected depth

I would say this show is appropriate for a 14 year old if watch with the parents and you have a good communication situation with that child so you can discuss some of the more adult themes. Otherwise I would say 16 +. I think the worth of this movie is in that it would be relatable two teenagers who feel like they are all alone or there is no hope. I think that the unexpected sexual assault at the end of the movie warrants it's worth in reinforcing that it is okay to do the right thing and keep yourself safe by protecting yourself and leaving an abusive situation. I think it also helps remind people that we are not alone sometimes all it takes is one person to change your life.
