Ratings guidelines: PG-13. In If Anything Happens, parents mourn their child, killed in a school shooting. Genius Loci contains some adult language, smoking and very brief nudity. The program overall, while excellent, deals with some tough issues, and a few of the films are not suitable for children under 12.
