Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Arthur Newman is an interesting but flawed film about a man who abandons his old life for a new identity, leaving behind a child. Despite some moments of levity, it's fairly somber, and the subject matter may be a little bleak for young teens and tweens. Still, the movie offers an interesting meditation on regrets and what we can make of them. Expect some scenes showing a couple in intimate poses and various states of undress (though no outright nudity), swearing ("s--t," "f--k," and more), some drinking and drug use (primarily weed), and a character who contemplates suicide.

Sexual Content

A couple is shown in some intimate situations. Viewers don't see any sensitive nudity (a woman is seen in various states of undress but still clad in underwear), but the setups imply various sex positions. A brief scene shows a porn movie playing on TV in the background.


A man contemplates suicide (viewers don't see anything gory, but it's implied). A man is shown dying after a seizure. A woman is shown screaming in a car.


Language is strong but not constant; words include "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and more.

Social Behavior

Most mistakes can be undone; running away doesn't erase them, and sooner or later, they'll catch up with you anyway. So why not get comfortable in your own skin?


Products/labels seen include Timex, Sabrett, Wells Fargo, Budweiser, and Polaroid.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some scenes show a woman completely inebriated, and, later, drinking and smoking weed with a man.
