QUICK TAKE:
Drama/Suspense: A team of rescuers attempts to retrieve a soccer coach and twelve boys who are trapped inside a long and flooded cave system.
PLOT:

It's 2018 and twelve teen and pre-teen boys from the Wild Boars junior football team -- along with their young coach, Ekkaphon Chanthawong (Teeradon Supapunpinyo) -- head into the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in northern Thailand before celebrating one boy's birthday. Unbeknownst to them, the monsoon season unexpectedly begins early, thus flooding parts of the approximately 10-kilometer-long cave and trapping the thirteen inside.

Learning of this, outgoing Governor Narongsak Osatanakorn (SAHAJAK BOONTHANAKIT) calls upon Captain Anand (TEERAPAT SAJAKUL) and his Navy SEALS -- including his most experienced diver, Saman Kunan (SUKOLLAWAT KANAROT) -- to attempt a rescue, but due to strong currents and inexperience in such conditions, they can only get so far into the cave. A British caver who lives nearby recommends they contact experienced cave rescuers Richard Stanton (VIGGO MORTENSEN) and John Volanthen (COLIN FARRELL) who then fly in and quickly access the dire situation.

Realizing the coach and boys will die without their help but will probably panic during any diving rescue -- and thus likely drown -- Richard and John come up with an unproven and extremely risky operation using the help of anesthesiologist Richard Harris (JOEL EDGERTON). With additional divers Chris Jewell (TOM BATEMAN) and Jason Mallinson (PAUL GLEESON), the team sets out to rescue the boys, all as heavy monsoon rains continue to flood the cave system.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast or are interested in the true-life story behind the film.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some strong language and unsettling images.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
