Winter is here, and that means life slows down a little. The activities aren’t as plentiful and the nights are longer. These cozy evenings at home seem to set an invitation for movie night! This winter, there is a DVD that ranks on my must-watch list; The Darkest Minds. This is a really interesting and exciting film that is suitable for mature tweens and teens to watch with the family for a really great story for an evening in.
After a mysterious and detrimental event, a group of teens develops some incredible powers. They are deemed unfit to be among the regular people and find themselves detained by the government. They must work together and the teens form a bond that is stronger than family ties. The teens make a harrowing escape into a world of adults who have betrayed them, and they must use their new powers to take control of their future.
The story is an action thriller and it does contain materials which might be harder for some younger viewers to handle. But, don’t let that discourage you from checking this out with your older kids because the film is interesting, exciting and definitely worth checking out!
While this is a young adult film, the story is good and has enough action for parents to enjoy for family movie night with the kids. I have heard the book this film was adapted from was incredible, I will definitely be looking for it to share with my boys who were completely impressed with The Darkest Minds DVD. This would be a great gift idea for the holiday season for any young adult that loves an exciting movie action film or a great title to add to your movie collection this year.
