Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Face of an Angel is a drama loosely inspired by the real-life 2007 Amanda Knox/Meredith Kercher murder case. A bloody murder scene is shown; there's also fighting and some shocking hallucination scenes (a monster, a woman being stabbed, a girl eating a human heart). A secondary character dies. Sex scenes include moaning sounds and a shot of a woman's naked breasts. Language is strong, but not frequent, with several uses of "f--k," "s--t," and more. The main character frequently drinks, smokes cigarettes and pot, and snorts cocaine; secondary characters are also seen drinking and smoking both cigarettes and pot. Despite the attractive stars and some lovely Italian scenery, the drifting, non-committal plot probably won't attract many teens.

Sexual Content

Sex between two main characters, twice; moaning heard, nothing shown. Naked breasts shown during a hallucination sex scene. A teen strips to her underwear to swim. The accused murderer's sex life is discussed.


Secondary character murdered. Bloody murder scene. Brief fight. Hallucinations: a woman stabbed in the back, a monster attack, a girl eats a human heart.


Several uses of "f--k" and "s--t," plus "prick," "bitch," "a--hole."

Social Behavior

Could be considered a warning against traveling in Europe -- or being a filmmaker -- but otherwise, it doesn't seem to have much of a point.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
