Perfect for Mature Teens

This movie was exceptional, and had a great positive message. There was a lot of language, but nothing a mature teen can handle. There is also a brief section of content sexual in nature, but again, not so extreme that teens need to skip the entire experience.

An Amazing Masterpiece!

If parents are concerned by the content, the only thing I would say is the frequent amount of strong language. Other than that, it's worth a watch!

INSPIRING, EXCELLENT. But watch out for seriously strong language.

Inspiring. Almost all characters are role models. Children can learn about what happens to the 'less fortunate' people. Although, the f-bombs and sexual references are spread throughout. 14+

Excellent film for teens and adults

This is a great movie about a mathematical genius, with the intellect to solve any problems, except the ones in his past. Even though the ending is fairly predictable, the performances by the lead actors are superb. Hollywood just doesn't make enough of these kinds of original, heartfelt, but entertaining films. Most parents will be able to watch this with their teens. There is some violence, foul language and drinking, but this is the reality for many young men living and working in South Boston. This one is definitely a must see movie.

Coming of age movie

There's a bit of language. There's also sex themes in there. Not for younger kids or preteens. I think older teens will enjoy this movie. It's a coming of age movie about finding one's self in the face of pain and challenges. Got drinking, too.
