Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Big Sky is a kidnapping thriller that centers on a mentally ill teen who must face her greatest fear -- the outdoors -- by hiking across the open desert for help after her mom in shot during a violent carjacking. There are executions and several shoot outs that leave bloody corpses, as well as plenty of swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t) and a character who's high, so it's best for older teens and up.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


Two kidnappers leave several people dead or injured after brutally hijacking a van. They execute some of the passengers with close-range shots. A teenage girl is later accosted by a twentysomething man who seems to be high, and they scuffle over a pepper-spray container. Several people end up in a standoff with guns drawn, resulting in some getting shot. A kidnapper starts to fondle the woman he's abducted before his partner makes him stop.


Frequent swearing, including "f--k," "s--t," "goddammit," and "queer."

Social Behavior

With the right motivation, people can dig deep to overcome even the most impossible-seeming obstacles, including their most terrifying fears.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A mentally ill character is repeatedly seen taking medications in a stressful situation, probably more than her usual dose. A man seems to be very high on drugs, speaking nonsensically about the benefits of hallucinogens.
