State and Main
When frenzied filmmakers descend on the town of Waterford, Vt., they shoot first and ask questions later in writer-director David Mamet's scathing satire of moviemaking, acting and the business of being famous. There's the egomaniacal star (Alec Baldwin) who can't keep his pants zipped, the starlet (Sarah Jessica Parker) who won't take off her top and the impotent writer (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who's summarily ignored by everyone.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that one character is attracted to underage girls and has sex with a girl who, despite clear indications that she approached him, is too young to legally consent to sex. There are other sexual references, including a character who takes off all her clothes as a way to seduce another character and a discussion about whether Claire will do a nude scene, as provided in her contract. Characters drink and smoke and use strong language. Many make moral compromises that parents will want to discuss with teens who see the movie.
