Raises good awareness
17 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Reviving Ophelia is a great movie for older teenage girls. A little over-dramatic (okay, way over-dramatic) and terrible acting, but raises good awareness about abusive relationships. Sometimes we don't know someone's crazy until it's too late.

I wish I had known the things this movie teaches before I had started dating. It's also important for parents to know how to handle the situation. Because it's true. If you push back on your child who is in an abusive relationship, they will only hide things from you and stay with the abuser.

For younger teenagers, there are small parts you might want to skip. No significant nudity is shown, but a mom walks in on her daughter giving a random guy from her English class oral sex. She doesn't get away with it and learns, so some parents might not mind.
