Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that many people die in this movie and never by natural causes. Characters are harassed, beaten, and killed, which in turn motivates more deaths. Children are orphaned by thieves, leaving them to fend for themselves through servitude and then prostitution. Addiction to gambling threatens the livelihood of one character, while the lives of all characters are threatened by the gangsters that rule the town. One character commits suicide to prevent a loved one from having to act dishonorably. A male character prefers to dress as a woman.

Sexual Content

Cross-dressing character, prostitution, child molestation (off-screen).

Violence

Extreme and graphic violence, death of parents, suicide portrayed as honorable.

Language

Brief strong language.

Social Behavior
