Gone Girl

This movie is the adaptation of the book Gone Girl this movie has great actors and a great director. Your teens probably want to watch it and there is barely any nudity you can see a nipple for 3 seconds and its shadowed. This movie makes you think and it will leave you asking questions I will not say any more because it would ruin the movie and it is a must watch for anyone
