Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Song is a faith-based drama about a successful musician with a loving wife and child at home who finds himself tempted by another woman while on a months-long tour. Both his marriage and his faith are tested. There's a good deal of drinking, and some characters pop pills, often facilitating poor choices. There's a little bit of language (including "s--t" and "whore"), some characters smoke cigarettes, and a married couple has some intense arguments, about honesty, fidelity, and sex -- themes that may not particularly resonate with younger viewers.
- Sexual Content
- A husband argues with his wife about their sex life. Several scenes feature heated discussions about what they each crave in an intimate relationship. He later has an affair with a woman who pursued him aggressively.
- Couples argue intensely. After one especially bad fight, the man starts breaking the windows in a half-finished structure. A spurned woman starts to attack a man; they're dragged apart by friends. A woman slaps a man after he says hurtful things.
- Very little swearing, but one person says "s--t," and another character calls a woman a "whore."
- Social Behavior
- Family and honesty are more important than success, wealth, or any other modern, materialistic trappings.
- Some people have iPhones.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Several scenes show people drinking heavily at bars and at parties and getting pretty drunk. Characters also use pills. One man makes some spectacularly bad choices while under the influence. Several characters smoke cigarettes.
