What Parents Need to Know

logo for common sense media

Parents need to know that Cast Away is a 2000 movie in which Tom Hanks plays a FedEx employee stranded on a desolate island for five years who must develop tremendous mental, physical, and emotional resilience to survive. There is frequent peril, beginning with the real-time plane crash in which Hanks' character must simultaneously avoid drowning and burning from the plane's wreckage. A dead body from the plane washes ashore. In a moment of rage, the lead character calls the island he is trapped on a "goddamn s--thole." In a scene that will definitely be too gruesome for more sensitive viewers, Chuck extracts a painfully sore tooth with a rock and the blade of an ice skate. His injuries draw blood, and his struggles to maintain sanity in the midst of so much isolation might be too intense for more sensitive viewers.
