What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Everest is a disaster film based on the actual events of May 10, 1996 -- which was then considered the deadliest day on the mountain, claiming eight lives, including those of experienced guides. Viewers will feel intense, harrowing peril as the climbers attempt the summit and then descend during an unexpected blizzard. And scenes of characters dying and succumbing to the elements are viscerally upsetting. There are a couple of scenes of adults drinking, some mild language ("damn," "Jesus" as an exclamation), and plenty of high-end alpine gear on display. For those who are old enough to remember the disaster, the movie feels tragic from the start. But ultimately this is a moving story about the risks involved in reaching your dream -- and how sometimes helping someone else can come at a huge risk to your own safety.
