Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The End of Love is a fascinating, sometimes intense, but somewhat shiftless drama about a young actor's battle to cope with single parenthood; some of the scenes can be sad to watch. For example, when Mark talks to his son about death, it's straightforward yet disturbing; another time, his son, whom he adores, paces listlessly as Mark falls asleep on the couch, exhausted and overwhelmed; and when Mark auditions for a job with his son in tow, the dialogue is riddled with swear words and the other actors are visibly disturbed by the presence of his child. Expect some swearing, including "s--t" and "f--k." There's also some drug use (primarily weed) and drinking, as well as some making out and a scene with a gun.
A guy makes out with a few women at different times.
Drunk and high characters play with a gun; one party-goer offers $2000 for someone to pull the trigger. A guy has a testy conversation with his roommates and calls them names. A guy, lost in his frustration and anger, slowly kills a goldfish.
"F--k" is used many times in front of a toddler. Also "s--t," "damn," etc.
Mark clearly struggles with the demands of single parenting and the heaviness of grief. But he is trying.
Mention of a Toyota Prius.

Characters smoke weed and drink at a party; one of them gets totally sloshed.
