Feast of LoveClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this well-meaning drama tries to offer some positive (and somewhat clichéd) life lessons -- support your friends and family, love is the answer, etc. But it deals with mature issues (infidelity, abuse, addiction), and has a fair amount of nudity (breasts, backsides, and one fleeting full-frontal glimpse) and graphic sex. Language, while not incessant, is also strong, including "s--t" and "f--k." In one particularly disturbing moment, a man hits a woman (and vice versa), with no apparent consequences; in fact, he wins out in the end.
- Sexual Content
- Frequent graphic sex scenes, including shots of women straddling men while naked (breasts are visible) in places both public (football field) and private (bedrooms). Men's backsides are visible when they stand up. A quick flash of frontal nudity, too, and two naked women kiss.
- A man pulls a knife on his son's girlfriend, and a man stabs his own hand. A man hits a woman, and she hits him back (later, they improbably reunite). Couples yell and scream at each other.
- Some use of words like "s--tfaced," "son of a b-tch," g-ddamned," and even "f--k." Language isn't incessant, though.
- Social Behavior
- Runs the gamut from the good (friends rely on each other for support during tough times) to the bad (wives cheat on their spouses, as does one husband; a woman hits on another man's wife).
- A handful of scenes in which real estate signs are shown, as well as branded movers' trucks.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Two illicit lovers drink wine every time they hook up; some smoking and drinking in bars. One character's son supposedly died of an overdose, and another has suffered from heroin addiction.
