Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Little Accidents is a moody drama about a small town that's been deeply affected by a tragic mining accident and how some of those impacted try to get their lives back on track. Characters keep big secrets and find solace in the most unlikely places, somber themes that may not resonate as well for teens. Expect strong language ("f--k," "s--t," and "a--hole"), quite a lot of drinking (including some by teens), and kissing between characters who are having an affair. They're shown in bed and showering together, but there's no simulated sex or sensitive body parts on display. Kids shove each other.

Sexual Content

A married woman has an affair with one of her husband's employees. They frequently meet up in a local motel, and though viewers never see them do more than kiss, they're often shown in bed, under the covers, getting dressed or showering together (no sensitive parts shown).


Family members argue. Kids get into a shoving match that leads to a tragic accident.


Frequent-but-not-constant swearing includes "f--k," "s--t," and "a--hole."

Social Behavior

All the main characters in this film are keeping secrets, which takes a toll on them. But the truth is freeing.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Several scenes include people drinking, including adults socializing at a bar, a couple drinking while they relax at the end of the day, and teens getting drunk in the woods. There's beer, whiskey, and wine; one sequence has a lot of people downing shots.
