Good Adult movie

This is an intense movie for Adults, but not for kids under 15. It is a serious movie with heavy problems and real-life swearing. The acting is excellent and it's one of my favorite movies.

Ordinary People

Very inappropriate for kids or teens. The content is extremely depressing and to heavy for many teens. It also introduces serious situations that students may not be ready for or comfortable with. There is also a big focus on suicide through out the movie. The sexual content is also not appropriate.

I'd have to say 14+

I'm not sure why CSM gave the language a "mild". There were about seven f-bombs and "s" words, while most of the other cuss words were used.
