Two friends connect over the decades at different times in their lives, and you can’t stop crying.

What age is it appropriate for? This movie is rated PG-13 for some strong language, but that’s it. The only barrier for younger kids is this is an intimate movie about what it’s like to look back on your entire life and regret the choices you made, something that – just throwing it out there – a 10-year-old may have no perspective on, nor care about.

Where to stream: Paramount+
