Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Memento follows the efforts of a man to avenge the rape and murder of his wife. Throughout the film, Leonard is motivated solely by his desire to find and execute the man he believes killed her. Characters drink, smoke, steal, lie to one another, sell drugs and commit murders. This isn't a film that most viewers will be able to absorb easily: The plot is relayed in a jumbled fashion, as Leonard suffers from short-term memory lost, and the audience primarily relies on him for information. Expect strong language, some blood and fighting, and a dark/mature feel.
Lots of bare-chested shots of the main character, plus one glimpse of his naked rear end.
