Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Before I Go to Sleep is a thriller about a woman with amnesia. It contains a few scenes of very intense violence with a man brutally beating a woman. He slaps and hits her, and uses blunt objects. Lots of blood is shown. Language is infrequent but can be very strong, with uses of "f--k" and "s--t." There's one brief but strong sex scene, with kissing, but no nudity. Other sex scenes, and an extramarital affair, are suggested. The female lead's naked bottom is shown, and some pinup centerfolds are briefly seen. The female lead smokes a cigarette in one shot. A Panasonic Lumix camera is an integral part of the plot. With its grown-up cast and grown-up situations, it seems unlikely that teens will be interested.

Sexual Content

A couple has sex in the bathroom, starting with passionate kissing. No nudity in that scene, but in another, the female lead's naked bottom is shown; she's also seen in a short, sexy robe. Nude centerfold pinups are very briefly seen hanging on an office wall. Discussion about how the female lead may have been cheating on her husband with another man, but she doesn't remember it.

Violence

Scenes of brutal violence against a woman. A man bashes her with various blunt objects in a hotel room, and there are flashbacks to earlier bloody beatings. She fights back, hitting and stabbing the man, and emerges bloody and injured. A drop of blood falls on the camera lens while she records. Other scenes of a man slapping her, plus suggestions of emotional manipulation.

Language

Language isn't constant but includes "f--k," "s--t," "bastard," and "prick."

Social Behavior

No real messages except that it helps to keep good notes and to be careful who you trust.

Consumerism

A Panasonic Lumix camera is an integral part of the plot.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Two glasses of red wine are on a table at dinner, but the characters aren't seen drinking. The female lead smokes a cigarette after sex.
