The Grizzlies

Director Miranda de Pencier's fact-based sports drama tells a story of hope amid rampant despair. In a Canadian Arctic town known for having the highest suicide rate in North America, a fresh-out-of-college history teacher (Ben Schnetzer) introduces lacrosse to the troubled local students (most prominently, Emerald MacDonald, Paul Nutarariaq, Ricky Marty-Pahtaykan and Booboo Stewart). As a result, they form their own kind of family and become a source of optimism for one another. Given its uplifting message, many parents may deem the film acceptable for older adolescents.

Watch out for: Mature themes, including suicide, drug abuse and alcoholism, some crude and crass language.

Rated: A-III, adults; MPAA: R
