A parents' guide to select new movies:
Rating: PG-13 for mature thematic elements including disturbing disaster and accident images, and for brief strong language
What it's about: People who have lost loved ones or have been through near-death experiences are drawn to a man who can talk to the dead — reluctantly.
The Kid Attractor Factor: Matt Damon, an epic tsunami and visions of the afterlife
Good lessons/bad lessons: Go to the light. Or don't, if you want to hang around to tell the tale.
Violence: A vivid apparent drowning, a deadly car accident
Language: Bits of profanity
Sex: Flirtation, rather overt
Drugs and alcohol: Wine is consumed.
Parents' advisory: A bit over the heads of small children, but perhaps of some comfort to tweens and teens. OK for 10 and older.
