Makes you think
2 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is one that has an encouraging message about the value of life very much like Its a Wonderful Life. It will make you think and want to talk about it with someone immediately after.

It has been a while since I have seen a good movie with a Sixth Sense type revelation at the end.

Though it is rated PG 13 it is a clean film. Here is the content in case you are wondering

Language: no four letter words.

Violence: there is a gunman who tries to hold up a bar for $ there are a few wild shots fired, punches thrown, bottles thrown, very little blood. Later there is an attempted murder and characters respond aggressively in self defense.

Sexuality: a character tries (unsuccessfully) to seduce another (implied nudity). Man in a towel after a shower.

Themes: Accusation of attempted rape. Alcoholism and heavy drinking. Mysterious Stalker presence implied throughout the first two acts.

In my opinion all edgy/questionable content is not glorified, instead it is contrasted against the positive choices made by the upstanding lead character who displays good morals and decision making.

I recommend it.
