Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie shows kids and young people living on the streets and in poverty in South Africa, with scenes showing harsh violence (stabbing, shooting, beating), drinking and drug use, the accidental kidnapping of a baby during a carjacking, posters warning against AIDS, and the parents' subsequent distress. The focus is on a young hoodlum, whose initial inability to cope with the infant's needs leads to terrible mistakes (the baby is covered with ants and filth, cries, needs food). He holds a gun on a young woman to force her to breastfeed the baby; he beats one friend and regrets it; he kills another in order to stop more violence.

Sexual Content

Woman nurses a child with her breast partially exposed.

Violence

A disturbingly slow and quiet assault with an ice pick; brutal beating that leaves victim's face a bloody pulp; carjacking that leaves woman driver beaten and horrified.

Language

Profanity in subtitles (f-word included).

Social Behavior

Characters are thieves and brutes by socialization; they lie, steal, and commit violence; one is redeemed when he learns to give up his needs for a baby's.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink (some drunken behavior by 18- and 19-year-olds), smoke cigarettes, and take drugs.
