Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Forger is a mildly entertaining drama about a criminal who wants to spend time with his dying 15-year-old son.

He's taken to see a prostitute but is interrupted while undressing. Brief kissing. Language is infrequent but includes uses of "f--k," "s--t," and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation). A grandfather gives a beer to a teen boy, and a secondary character is a drug addict: she takes pills and drinks alcohol. Some background smoking and drinking. A shipment of "H" (heroin) is mentioned.
