Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Louder Than Bombs is a drama about a father and two sons dealing with the loss of their dearly departed wife/mother, a world-renowned conflict photographer. The movie features some disturbing images, mostly of war-torn areas and dead human and animal bodies. There's strong language right from the start, including "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and more. Sexual content includes discussion of masturbation and a couple of love scenes -- one with partial nudity (bare shoulders, a brief glimpse of a woman's bare breasts in bed). Characters -- including teens -- drink (one teen gets very drunk). The story also touches on mature issues like suicide, adultery, and dysfunctional family relationships.

Sexual Content

A couple sleeps together. Adults kiss passionately and are shown in bed together with bare shoulders, backs, and, in one case, a glimpse of bare breasts. A teen boy writes a revealing letter in which he admits he's masturbated seven times in one day. A montage of the "real" things you can see on the Internet includes a blink-and-miss shot of the face of a woman who's presumably having sex. Two different characters commit adultery.

Violence

Disturbing war photos show people in war-torn places, dead or dying, or holding weapons. A woman dies in an accident that was actually a suicidal act. A sequence shows dead people and animals.

Language

Strong language includes "f--k," "f--king," "s--t," "a--hole," and "bitch."

Social Behavior

Encourages open, honest communication between family members and shows the hardship faced by those with unique, risk-driven careers as they integrate back into their family lives.

Consumerism

Products/brands seen include iPhone, MacBook, Toyota, Xbox.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Teens drink at a party; one girl gets so drunk that she pees in front of a friend who's escorting her home. Adults drink at parties, meals. One character recalls a dream in which her husband is smoking cigarettes; her husband then pantomimes what the smoking looked like in the dream.
