This is a wonderful film. There is a bit of salty laguage...teenage boys and miners...what do you expect? But there is one comment from one boy to another as they are watching the sky for Sputnik that simply does not need to be there and would be a potential for "Mommy what does THAT mean?" from children. Fast forward. Other than that it is a great film.Read More
