MPAA (Rated PG-13 for some peril and thematic elements)

Sex & Nudity

  • None. There are no sex or nudity shown in this movie.
  • A woman is flirtatious with a man as a part of a show at the start of the film. This is the only stretch at sexual content in the film.

Violence & Gore

  • High altitude has several risks to the human body. Some blood is shown when a person begins to experience cerebral edema and bleeds from the nostrils onto another person. Significance is primarily due to the pallet of the film being desaturated, the blood stands out.
  • Frozen skin tears easily, and this happens to a person's hands. It is commented on, and seen briefly, but not dwelled on or shown in detail.


Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • In one instance Amelia is awakening from her sleep and her sister finds a bottle. It is implied that she was drinking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The latter half of the film has frequent scenes of peril around the life-threatening nature of the voyage. These are not overly dramatized, and most of the film maintains an upbeat style.
  • A character falls asleep and falls from a great height. They awaken while sliding and scramble for their life. Not too graphic, but jarring.
  • An air balloon is buffeted by a storm, launching people from its basket. This is filmed in a frenetic style and is a tense moment that could scare young viewers with its combination of thunder, lightening and peril.
