Parents need to know that I'm Not Ashamed is the true story of Rachel Joy Scott, the first teen to fall at the hands of the Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, who killed 12 high school students and one teacher at Columbine High School on April 20,1999. This film about the last year of Rachel's life, recreated through her own journal entries and from the stories of those who were close to her, details her transition from a mildly disobedient and troubled teen to ardent Christian, committed to helping others and "truly living a life for Jesus." Newsreel footage, along with the prospective audiences' awareness of the events in Littleton, Colorado, prepares viewers for the final violent and tragic moments of the movie (with gunfire and death). Disturbing scenes include the two boys' preparations for the massacre, sequences showing cruel school bullying, and private moments in which Rachel reveals a very fragile state of mind. Teen drinking and smoking was clearly a staple of the Columbine kids' social life at that time. And, while there is no overt sexual activity, there are references to sex, promiscuity, and some kissing and passionate embraces are shown. This film, with its real-life heroine and violent resolution, is best for mature teens only.
