Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film includes scenes showing a counselor's attempted seduction of his teenaged charge (the older man takes photos of the boy and asks him to take off his shirt). Characters use strong language (frequent use of "f--k," slang for male and female genitals), drink and smoke cigarettes (a 12-year-old girl smokes with her classmate). Flashbacks show the protagonist in sexual situations with women who are not his wife (including brief nudity). When a young girl is called a "Camel toe," the film includes an insert shots to illustrate the reference (as well as a real camel's foot, to pound home the point). The film is focused on family tensions, so many scenes show arguments and resentments. The grandfather is dying, so the film includes several scenes in the hospital. A character points an arrow at his wife's new boyfriend. Several men fight with one another, drawing blood.

Sexual Content

Sexual scenes show breasts and adulterous activity; a man tries to seduce a teenaged boy by having him pose for pictures with his shirt off.

Violence

Language

Heavy use of the f-word (over 50 instances), slang for genitals, "damn," "ass."
