This was an amazing, incredible movie! It is rated PG, as a parent, I believe it should be PG13 because of the deep meaning and heavy sadness. Not for my 11 yr. old tomboy that doesn't really cry at much. She cried herself to sleep and was very affected by the movie. Great movie, deserved all of the awards, would have loved to see Pi actor get nominated for Oscar. The special effects were almost seamless.
