'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings' (1979)

Forceful telling of Angelou's coming-of-age book.

Age: 13+

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this movie depicts the violent beginnings of a rape of a very young protagonist. The entire assault isn't shown, but it's clear what will happen. When Maya identifies her rapist, her uncles kill him. The movie also conveys strong messages about overcoming adversity and learning to love yourself as you are. —Common Sense Media (Photo: Tomorrow Entertainment)
