COMMENTS: THE BIOGRAPHICAL DRAMA "MOLLY'S GAME" EXPLORES POSITIVE THEMES OF RESILIENCE, AMBITION, INTEGRITY, REDEMPTION, OVERCOMING ADDICTION AND MAKING AMENDS, AS WELL AS MORE NEGATIVE THEMES OF ADDICTION (TO GAMBLING AND DRUGS), GREED, ILLEGAL GAMBLING AND DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS. THEMES ARE COMPLEX, MATURE AND OF AN ADULT NATURE, WHICH REQUIRES A MATURITY TO UNDERSTAND.
THEMES HAVE A LOW TO MILD SENSE OF THREAT AND MENACE, BUT THE NEGATIVE THEMES SUCH AS THOSE DEALING WITH GAMBLING MAY BE MORALLY MISLEADING TO COGNITIVELY IMMATURE CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS, WHO MAY BE INFLUENCED BY THE SEEMINGLY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE ENJOYING GAMBLING AND BECOMING ADDICTED, AS WELL AS THOSE OF SUBSTANCE ADDICTION AS A TEMPORARY COPING MECHANISM .
POSSITIVE MESSAGES ARE REDEEMING AND MAY HAVE A MITIGATING IMPACT, BUT ONLY FOR MATURE VIEWERS OVER THE AGE OF 16 YEARS WHO HAVE ACQUIRE AN INDEPENDENT MORAL CODE.
