"One of the 50 Coolest Websites...they simply tell it like it is" - TIME

Digging to China | 1998 | PG | - 2.2.0

An imaginative and somewhat alienated young girl befriends a retarded man who stops at her mother's hotel en route to a home for the mentally ill. With Kevin Bacon, Evan Rachel Wood, Mary Stuart Masterson, Cathy Moriarty and Marian Seldes. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A little sexual innuendo. A couple hugs and kisses each other. We see a woman pulling her shirt closed and a shirtless man lying in bed in the background.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - We learn a woman died and later see her overturned car in a ditch. A girl pushes a woman and a girl and woman slap each other. A woman punches a man repeatedly and the man pins her to the ground (we later see her arm in a sling).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
