User Reviews: Parents need to know that Reach is a teen drama about bullying, suicide, affairs, and abuse. It is not however suitable for teens as the positive messages in it are too murky to be coherent or valuable. It portrays teen substance use (including drinking, smoking pot, and vaping), physical abuse, and characters actively contemplating suicide or planning to hurt others. It is melodramatic and predictable in a muddled sort of way. It would encourage no conversation between parents and teens that I would see as useful but if you like disturbed crying teens with twisted psyches that end up shooting people it might be the movie for you.
