Ender's Game

Out now in theaters, Rated PG-13 (Ages 11+)
If your older child is looking for less child's play and more action, check out Ender's Game together. Based on the 1980s sci-fi book by Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game is about a child who is called to become a commander in a futuristic army to battle aliens. Ender has to prep his army using a game-based simulation, and your child will love the idea of a kid in charge. While the book can be violent at times, the movie focuses instead on role models and morality, making it perfect for the preteen set.
