Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Slow West is a Western with a very subtle, slightly dark sense of humor. There's lots of shooting and killing, and things get very bloody; a character is shot through the hand with an arrow, and in one dark scene, two kids are shown waiting for their parents, who were just shot to death. Language includes occasional uses of "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and "bastard," plus a very mild, brief sexual reference. Characters get drunk on absinthe and wake up with hangovers; they also smoke cigars and cigarettes regularly (accurate for the era), and there's a brief reference to psychedelic mushrooms. Viewers who are at least casual fans of Westerns will best appreciate the movie, but adventurous older teens and indie film lovers may want to check it out, too.

Many characters shot and killed. Dripping, pooling blood. Blood spatters. Dried-up corpse smashed by a tree. Arrow through the hand. Two children orphaned after a shootout. Robberies. General menace.
