Collateral Beauty-Teen Movie Review

Howard (Will Smith) is the man. He’s a successful New York advertising executive. Not only do all the agents in the firm love his electric personality and strong work ethic, he also attracts clients from all over. However, Howard’s life dramatically changes the day his 6 year-old daughter passes away. Howard becomes reclusive and severely depressed; he no longer has the will to work. His friends and co-workers become very concerned about the guy they always admired.  They eventually come up with a plan to help Howard find meaning and beauty from his tragic loss.

Talking Points:

  • The movie highlights the importance of love and how all humans need it. The movie suggests that love is important in happy times and times of grief.
  • The movie also demonstrates that time, love, and death are three major components of life.

Sexual Content: None

Violent/Disturbing Content: Mild

  • We see a bicycle accident.

Crude or Profane Language: Moderate

  • We hear the f-word, “b–ch,” “sh-t,” “b–ch,” and “h–l.”

Drug and Alcohol Content: Mild

  • We see characters’ drinking at a bar.

Will Kids/ Teens Like It?  No

  • The subject matter will most likely not appeal to kids as the movie highlights mature themes relating to grief. We hear several grieving parents’ stories about their loss.

Overall this is a wonderful heartfelt drama. Parents need to be aware of the mature subject matter that may be disturbing to young kids.
