Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this drama about the end of the world from controversial Danish director Lars von Trier is emotionally overwhelming and very depressing, with a strong sense of mortal terror. Most of the movie's conflicts consist of arguing and yelling, but the impending destruction of the entire world is very intense. The other big issue is sexuality, with the main character (played by Kirsten Dunst) appearing fully naked in more than one scene and having sex with a younger man (not her husband) on her wedding day. Language includes infrequent use of "f--k" and "s--t," and characters occasionally drink alcohol, mostly at a wedding.

Sexual Content

The main character is seen fully naked in more than one scene. She passionately kisses her husband on their wedding day (almost foreplay). But at one point she also drags a younger man off to a golf course for some rough and unexpected (perhaps forced?) sex (they remain clothed, and she climbs on top of him).

Violence

The movie is all about the impending destruction of the Earth; there's an overall sense of terror, and a young boy is involved. Characters also yell and argue a great deal.

Language

Language is infrequent, but occasional strong words include "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," "damn," and "hell."

Social Behavior

In a very grim movie in which nothing matters and nothing can be done, family is shown to be an important source of comfort.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink heavily at a wedding. One character drinks champagne while awaiting the end of the world.
