Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Frontera is a drama that revolves around an unsolved death on the U.S./Mexico border. There's some language ("goddamn," "tits," "d--k"), and teens can be seen using guns irresponsibly. A violent sexual assault is brief but disturbing. The film doesn't have much dialogue, and about half is in Spanish (subtitled in English). Kids probably won't be flocking to Frontera; it's a heavy drama with a lot of challenging issues. But that might be the very reason to have your mature teens watch it, as it attempts to portray a realistic vision of America's border problems.

Sexual Content

In one scene, a group of immigrants is forced to strip to their underwear in an attempt to control and disorient them.

Violence

A woman is killed in the first few minutes as the indirect result of a gunshot. There's also a scene in which a character is violently raped; her pants are pulled down, and it's very clear what her attacker is doing before the scene cuts out. Teenagers are shown using guns irresponsibly.

Language

Teens call each other "f----rs" and mention shooting "the tits off a fly." Other characters say "goddamn." Also "d--k."

Social Behavior

Forgiveness and honesty are both explored extensively through the characters' experiences.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
