Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this affecting, complex drama depicts a faithful woman struggling to reconcile her doubts with her religious beliefs. It's a bracingly honest portrayal that doesn't buy into the typical stereotypes of either the pious or the questioning. The lead character starts her relationship with God in earnest as a teen mom; the road that leads her there is revealed straightforwardly: She's shown having premarital sex (though there's no nudity) and struggling to understand the adults around her, many of whom have lost their moorings themselves. These are heavy themes, which -- along with the movie's sexual content (in addition to teens having sex, characters also frankly discuss body parts and how to pleasure the opposite sex) and swearing -- makes it a better fit for older viewers.
Teens are shown making out and seemingly having sex (viewers mostly hear grunts and hints of movement; there's no nudity). A married woman flirts with men who aren't her husband. A group of men discusses how to pleasure their wives; parts of the vagina are mentioned. Two women draw their husband's penises on paper.
A car crash puts a child's life in peril. A married couple fights; once, it gets ugly, with the man nearly choking the woman. Another couple screams at each other within earshot of their kids.
