Is there a certain maximum age rating a movie can have to be shown in school?
We watched Gladiator, a very nicely made movie but a very gory one, in October, and I
believe it's rated 14A or 18A. No students in our class are 14, though one will be in
two weeks or so. I went home dizzy and almost physically sick, because I couldn't
We're now starting Kingdom of Heaven. I know it's rating is very high too.
I'm wondering, without parent permission slips or any information given to the
parents aside from the students telling them if they choose, is that okay for a
teacher to do?
Here's some sites, just to show you guys:

(No, I don't live in the U.S., but don't those regulations still apply?)
Any sites, advice, links, or help would be appreciated.
