Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Hungry Hearts is an engrossing, nerve-wracking drama that focuses on the intense bond between a mother and her new baby. It shows what can happen when that connection is somewhat off kilter. There's brief nudity (breasts, woman's bottom) and some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k"), as well as a little social drinking and some intense arguments -- including moments when a man strikes his wife. Parts of the film feature an infant in distress, which can be tough to watch, especially for parents.
Two brief sex scenes show a couple moving vigorously, with a quick glimpse of a bare breast. A woman is shown in a hospital gown that reveals her bottom; she's later seen bathing, her breasts visible.
Arguing, with loud yelling. A man strikes his wife.
Language includes "s--t," "f--k," "bitch," and "goddammit."
