Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Match is an indie drama about three characters who are each hiding something from one another -- including a renowned ballet instructor (Patrick Stewart), a graduate student who's interviewing him for her dissertation (Carla Gugino), and her somewhat reluctant husband (Matthew Lillard). Over the course of a long afternoon fueled by wine, whiskey, and pot, the conversation turns increasingly personal, and it becomes clear that the three strangers have a deep connection. In addition to the substance use, expect a lot of swearing (especially "f--k") and some explicit discussions about sex, including oral sex. Two men wrestle in a tense encounter.
- Sexual Content
- Several discussions about sex, including a long and somewhat graphic discourse on oral sex.
- A heated argument between an old man and a younger man becomes violent; the younger one wrestles the elder into submission.
