What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Alive is a 1993 movie based on the true story of a Uruguayan rugby team forced to eat the flesh of their dead companions to survive being left for dead in the Andes Mountains after a plane crash. Though cannibalism is the most notorious aspect of this story, the movie doesn't treat it in a sensationalized or exploitative manner; rather, it's made clear through their arguments that, despite obvious ethical and spiritual concerns, they have no other course of action to take to survive. The plane crash itself is graphically shown: Passengers are blown out of the plane in their seats after the plane splits in two. Injuries, death, blood, and shock are shown in many ways. Profanity includes "f--k" and "s--t." For older teens mature enough to grasp the testament to willpower, perseverance, and spirituality when placed in a horrific situation, Alive is as thoughtful as it is riveting.
