Polish director Michał Gazda helmed the drama movie from a screenplay co-written by Marcin Baczyński and Mariusz Kuczewski.

What is the drama film rated?

The film is rated TV-14, meaning it may not be appropriate for ages under 14. It was given this age rating for fear, strong language, sex, and smoking. Many parents would consider the content just listed inappropriate for young kids to be watching. So, we wouldn’t recommend watching this film with kids around. Maybe wait until they’re asleep or when they’re occupied with a kids’ movie or show. That way, you won’t be interrupted.

It’s about a 2 hour and 20 minute long movie, so you’ll definitely want to set aside some time to watch it. However, once you start it, you’ll be immediately hooked.

Forgotten Love is streaming now only on Netflix.
