Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Rectify revolves around the rape and murder of a teenage girl. Although there's some blood (including a man committing suicide with a firearm), most violence is described rather than shown. In terms of sexual content, you'll see simulated sexual acts (including intercourse, oral sex, and masturbation) and brief shots of women in lingerie with no sensitive parts shown. You'll also hear gateway terms like "son of a bitch," "hell," and "cracker," along with unsettling descriptions of prison rape. One character smokes cigarettes, and several others drink socially.

Social Behavior
