I saw the rating was PG rather than PG-13 and presumed it to be appropriate for my 7 and 9 year old boys. Wrong! Every time I fail to consult Common Sense Media before selecting a movie, I have regrets.
I rank the quality of the movie higher than CSM - I thought it very good, very well done. However, CSM did a great job summarizing the story line. I so wish I had read it before viewing. The tragedy became the center of the story as the movie progressed. The description of the accident scene is detailed and the saddness was just too heavy for my boys. And I was quite taken aback by the father's swearing!
