Why Lisey’s Story is fine for teenagers..

Growing up, My parents would never allow me shows with R ratings or movies not my age. But if your a parent, It’s not about the ratings. It’s about the content in it and If your kid is ready for something mature enough to watch. This movie may have violence and swearing. But it is amazing. The first episode kind of bored me but the rest turned out great. If your kid is a teenager show them this show. They might enjoy it.
