    Ouch, molestation may be too heavy. I thought it was mostly about pageants vs. derby with a teen relationship (questionably sexual) peppered in.

    I would consider the movie too dark for a 10 year old. I also don't think they could understand the subtitles in the dialogue.
    LOL! I thought I was writing about Hard Candy.



    Yes! The content in the movie is not that graphic.

    Here's a website that rates the sexuality, violence and profanity.

    Whew! I wondered about that- I didn't remember reading about molestation in any of the reviews I read. And that's a great website! Thanks Argus!

    The only sexual part is when Bliss (Ellen Page) and her love interest strip down to their underwear in a pool and kiss, and it's implied that they have sex. There's some kissing/making out between teens also. That's pretty minor though.

    The overall theme of the movie is not romance or sex, but it has a teenage feel to it. IDK...I think about age 12 would be the cut off, but I'm not a parent.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Based on the site Argus posted I think I need to see it myself before I think about taking her. It's really more the dialogue (stuff about getting crabs and talking about dick size and stuff like that) than the making out/implied sex.
