DD1 (8) came home tonight saying she had cried in class. They had watched "Goodnight Mr Tom" as part of their learning about WW2. However, she says that she was upset as there is a scene when the mum goes mad, locks daughter and baby in cellar and then goes and drowns herself. Children left in cellar for a month and invevitably baby dies. She is quite disturbed by it. Now, I haven't seen the film. Not sure how in context her memory is. However looking up on internet it is a PG, not a U. Has anyone seen it and can they comment on whether it is appropriate for the emotional capacity of 8/9 year olds. DD1 is quite mature for her age. Not sure if this has helped or not. Any feedback would be welcome
