Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Irrational Man has a similar DNA to most Woody Allen films: It's about an older man hobbled by a bleak outlook on life who grows enamored of a sunny, lively younger woman; infatuation, murder, and chaos ensue. Though the subject matter is fairly serious, there's not much actual violence here; a man poisons a stranger and plans another death, someone tries to throw another person down an elevator shaft, and a character messes with a gun at a party. The entanglements are played pretty lightly, too; couples are shown kissing and in bed (though there's no explicit nudity). Expect some swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more), drinking (one character is an alcoholic), and drug use (weed is offered).
Couples kiss passionately, sometimes in bed. No graphic nudity. Some groping.
A man poisons a complete stranger. Before that, he plans the death of another. A man tries to throw a woman down an elevator shaft; earlier he messes with a gun at a party and plays Russian Roulette.
Infrequent use of words including "f--k," "damn," "s--t," and more.
The truth will out, so you might as well live by it.
Labels/products mentioned or seen include Viagra and Volvo.
