Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Burnt is a fairly intense drama about a famous chef (Bradley Cooper) who disappeared at the top of his game after drugs and drinking undid him -- and who's now seeking redemption and a comeback. There are some pretty mature themes in play, including addiction, relationship problems, self-destruction, sobriety, and forgiveness. Expect tons of salty language, from "hell" to "s--t" and "f--k," passionate kissing, and frank discussions about the toll that addiction takes.
When things aren't going well, Adam can lose his temper in an eruptive manner, screaming at his crew, throwing pots and dishes around, and leaving everyone quaking in their boots. He's shown beaten up. One disturbing scene shows a character seemingly trying to kill himself with a plastic bag.
Frequent swearing includes "f--k," "s--t," "bastard," "prick," "hell," etc.
When you're down on your luck, there's nowhere to go but up. Also, there's always the chance for for redemption and a second (or even third) act. Other themes include addiction (and sobriety), self-destruction, and forgiveness.
Lots of close-ups of food/dining establishments, plus restaurant-related name-dropping, including the Michelin star system, the Langham hotel, Burger King, etc.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Lots of allusions and outright references to a character's drugged-out, drunken past -- the consequences of which still haunt him.
