14 and up.

this great awesome thriller movie gone stars with Amanda seyfried has enough chills to keep your older teens entertain and parents you need to know that gone has some violence some strong language used and some drugs used such as prescription pills

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 13+

Appropriate for 13 and above...maybe even 12...

Just got back from seeing this with my 13 year old boy, who doesn't like scary movies. This was perfect for him. There is pill-popping due to psychiatric illness, talk of AA, and gun use. There's a stabbing and the perpetrator meets a violent end, but it is not excessive at all. I liked the fact that the main character, Jill, follows her intuition and doesn't let others dictate what she does. In cases like this one, it is an important message for teens to learn. You cannot trust blindly. You must stand for something. Have courage. Prepare and strengthen your mind, etc... I have seen plenty of PG-13 movies that should have been an R -- this one wasn't even close.

This title has:

Great role models
