one violent scene causes weeks of PTSD flashbacks

Since seeing this animated movie several weeks ago I have frequent flashbacks of one scene with 'Jailbird' describing an act of extreme violence. The scene has little relevance to other scenes in the movie, and has zero redeeming value. My life would be better if I had never seen this movie. I would not recommend this movie to anyone, adult, teenager, or child.

Thought-provoking

This film models what it means to be a thoughtful and intellectually engaged human being. The focus of the film is on living consciously and deliberately, and I think it is quite age-appropriate for teenagers.

Great role models
