Warning: spoiler alert.

Some movies should come with sensitivity warnings to consider the feelings of grieving viewers.

We watched last night "Detachment" with Adrien Brody. Both my friend and I were having the blues because respectively, that particular day, 12 years ago and 7 years ago, my brother and her nephew had committed suicide.

I don't wish this predicament on anyone, but there are viewers who unfortunately have had to go through the ordeal. The last thing these viewers want to watch on the anniversary of their loved one's passing is a movie where suicide is a primary story driver. This is not a commentary on the quality of the movie, which otherwise was a pleasure to watch.

I beg the imdb.com staff to implement a reasonable grief alert to avoid these kind of situations. It seems rather simple to set up, could be very effective and those of us who grieve annually would be most grateful..

Thanks in advance.
