Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different from she had imagined.
Violence: ** (Scenes from the car crash involve a skidding truck that flips and Mia’s car that appears to end up a crushed, burning wad of crumpled sheet metal and shattered glass. We’re spared images of the actual crash. And though Mia’s mom dies at the scene, we only see the body bag she’s being zipped into.
We do see Mia’s body on the snowy roadside, with cuts on her face and arms, and a pool of blood seeping out from behind her back. We see her father being wheeled into the hospital on a stretcher, his face wrapped in bloody bandages. Surgeons work on Mia, the area scattered with bloody surgical pads and equipment. [SPOILER ALERT] The person who appears to have been hurt the least in the accident is Mia’s young brother Teddy—but we’re later told that he dies from an “epidural hemorrhage of the brain.”)
Drugs/Alcohol: **(There’s quite a bit of drinking in this movie, there’s the whole punk rock band seen & you see many teenagers drinking including Mia & Adam, there’s also a scene where Mia seems a little drunk. Mia’s Dad makes a joke about crack.)
Inappropriate Language: *** (12 sh**, 2 b**ch, 1 Jesus, 4 a**, 6 he**, & 1 d**m)
Sexual Content:**** (Early on in their relationship, Mia tells Adam, as they kiss, “Let’s take it slow, OK?” He replies, “I love slow.” But the two do eventually speed things up and race their way into sex. “Think of it like we’re playing music together,” Adam tells his more innocent girlfriend. And then we see them partially undress, kissing and caressing each other before the camera ducks away.[The camera focuses very closely on things like their hands, it isn't graphic in any way.] In another scene, they’re laying in bed, covered by a blanket, you see their bare shoulders. They make plans to get an apartment together when Mia leaves home for college.
A busty girl asks Adam to autograph her chest, some cleavage is shown. He does so. A female band mate displays cleavage in a revealing top. And the camera also catches her kissing her girlfriend. [This last like not even 10 seconds]
A pregnant family friend coos about the “hotness” of one of Adam’s romantic choices. The woman’s husband retorts with, “Stand down, woman. You’re already knocked up.” Guys play music to get laid and because they’ve got rage, but mostly to get laid,” Denny informs his wife.
Movie Rating: PG – Mature Theme & Language May Offend | I personally wouldn’t recommend this film to anybody under the age of 16.
