Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, although this is a period piece set in Victorian England, it's based on a 2002 novel, the title of which is a double entendre for a person skilled in pickpocketing...and masturbation. As a result, it includes modern sexual themes (including a sexual relationship between two women) that you might not expect, with simulated sex acts between characters onscreen, albeit with no nudity -- just the occasional bare back. Language is a bit salty, too, with audible terms like "bitch," "ass," and "f--kstaff," and there's also occasional violence (including hangings and stabbings) with some blood. Alcohol consumption is limited to social drinking.

Sexual Content

Sexually charged kissing (between both men and women, and women and women), plus simulated sexual activity (including intercourse). Suggested nudity in the form of bare backs, etc., plus a book illustration that clearly shows male and female genitalia. The title itself is a euphemism for a person skilled in masturbation.


Violence isn't constant, but there are hangings, choking, torture, and stabbings (with a fair amount of blood).


Audible terms include "damn," "ass," "bitch," and slang like "bleedin'," with a few stronger words like "f--kstaff."

Social Behavior

While this is a love story on some level, it's weighed down by major themes of greed, deception, and duplicity. The world is peopled with dangerous characters, and the overall feel is rather grim.
