Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
Yesterday I reviewed the movie The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. Then, some of you commented that you might watch the movie with teens.
I felt I hadn't described the movie sufficiently, so I added a comment. I didn't know if you would see it, so I'm repeating it here:
ALERT! I don't want to give you the wrong impression about this
movie. I may have understated these kids' problems when I used the term "teen angst." Charlie and a number of other characters have some extremely serious stuff going on in their lives. Be prepared to discuss what the characters face and have gone through in the past. You might want to watch the movie alone before watching it with teens.
There! Now I feel better. If I'm going to review a movie, I think it's my duty to warn parents that it's okay for kids, or, more likely, not okay, or if you're going to watch it with kids, be prepared to talk about it.
Infinities of love,
