Thought-provoking film not for tweens/young teens.
Who are you to say this film is not for young 'teens' as you call them. You have no right to put yourself above those considered 'teenagers' because you believe you will understand or truly feel this film more than they may.

I hate these sorts of movie guides: what teens can and cannot digest. It's utter bullshit. Frankly I think more teens should view films like 21 Grams rather than Adam Sandler's latest fart fest. I saw this around aged 16 or 17 when it was in theatres and I understood the film was by no means condoning violence or drug/alcohol use. I don't think these reviewers, or society in general, give teens enough credit and it's a pity because there are some top notch performances, outstanding moments and interesting themes in this film that could be used as a basis for discussion between young adults and parents.

I disagree with three comments.She has more experience in life than any of the young teens who will watch that movie.That does not mean someone teens more mature would like it and enjoy it but that for many young teens this movie would be disturbing. She is doing a job very much needed in our society maturity come with age and some movies are difficult to understand too heavy and too shocking that any young teen could watch them.

I disagree with the three comments above.Nell Minow has more experience in life than any of the young teens who will watch that movie.That does not mean someone teens more mature would not like it and enjoy it but that for young teens in general this movie would be disturbing. She is doing a job very much needed in our society which is to help the parents who cares about their children to make an intelligence choice for them according to the maturity of their children.I think it is fair and if you don't agree with that that's fine but you have no right to judge her on her job she does it for those who want and need it .If you people don't need it disagree or are mature enough then fine move on to your own business.let her do her job.
I thank you for your work Minow and common sense media is great.

I hate this kinda comment. Teens are generally imature these days cause society is always babysitting them. Poor "modernism".
