This story looks at the idea of immortality and living forever, and its emphasis is on this life, rather than an after-life experience. Several Bible passages are read at the funeral of a character who dies. The film is refreshingly free of strong language, but several scenes involve minor scuffles. There are some shootings although the shootings are few and relatively bloodless, but a mortal blow over the head means doom for one character. “Tuck Everlasting” does have an interesting love story and can be enjoyed by pre-teens and older viewers, and may generate some interesting discussion points with parents. Although a bit slow moving in the beginning, the story picks up soon into the film, and it manages to arouse the viewer’s curiosity. We approve this film for ages twelve and above, and we award it four Doves.
