Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Remember has a couple of intensely violent scenes, with people (and a dog) being shot and killed; plenty of blood is shown, as are gory dead bodies. Also, "f--k" is used several times in a short span of time, and there's a scene of heavy drinking (whiskey). But otherwise, this is an extremely thoughtful drama about revenge; actions and their repercussions; and history and memory. It manages to discuss the horrors of the Holocaust without showing any disturbing flashbacks, and it could lead to interesting conversations. But given that the two stars are octogenarians, and the movie touches on the hardships of being old, it's not likely to be on most teens' must-see list. (Although the presence of Breaking Bad co-star Dean Norris could help.)
A gun is purchased and pointed at people. Some characters and a dog are killed, with gory, bloody wounds and spilled blood as a result. Gruesome dead bodies are shown. Characters are sometimes agitated and confrontational. Nazi imagery shown. An old man falls in the street.
Several uses of "f--k" in one scene. Also "hell," "piss," "my God," and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation).
Deals thoughtfully with the ways in which harmful ideals and beliefs can be justified -- as well as passed on (dangerously) to new generations. Also addresses different types of discrimination, specifically those at play during the Holocaust. On the other hand, the movie is also partly about revenge.
Drugs / Tobacco /
An adult character drinks several glasses of whiskey fairly quickly and obsessively. Cigarettes and cigarette butts shown.
