Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that experimental director Terrence Malick's To the Wonder is a highly stylized examination of love, focusing on a couple who learn that living and being together is harder than falling for each other. Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko meet in France, her home, then move to Oklahoma, where he lives and works, and try to make a life together. The film has almost no dialog (so strong language isn't an issue); instead, the story is told through short, moving scenes narrated by voiceovers. There are some intense arguments that sometimes move people to destroy household objects, as well as some brief nude sequences (breasts), lots of loving embraces/caresses, and occasional drinking.

Sexual Content

Many scenes show men and women gently caressing each other, embracing, and sometimes cuddling while lying together clothed. A few sequences show them making love, including a brief glimpse of bare breasts.

Violence

Several intense arguments between couples, including yelling and breaking household objects.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

The film posits that it's hard to make love last and thrive, no matter how bright the flame burns at the start. The central couple struggles to remain connected, but their intense feelings of affection sometimes turn to equally intense anger. It's honest and raw.

Consumerism

A few brief glimpses of consumer products in the background of scenes -- i.e. one that's set in a grocery store.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some scenes show adults drinking casually, in bars and at home.
