Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this indie drama stars Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow but is not a teen-oriented romance. The movie covers several mature themes like alienation, unrequited love, suicidal tendencies, and how parents relate to their adult children. There are two sex scenes, including a bare breast; very coarse language (more than 30 "F" bombs); and an apparent suicide attempt.

Sexual Content

Two sex scenes -- one is in a bed with bare shoulders/backs visible and the other one outdoors with the couple fully clothed. Michelle shows one breast to Leonard through her apartment window.

Violence

Disturbing scene of a man jumping into water apparently to drown himself. Upsetting conversation about miscarriage and a D&C.

Language

Coarse language -- more "F" bombs (at least 30) than usual for an R-rated drama.

Social Behavior

Adulterous relationship succeeds, man seems to try to commit suicide.

Consumerism

Mercedes, The Metropolitan Opera, and Cartier are all featured.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Michelle and her buddies take Ecstasy and various adults at a club and party are shown drinking cocktails.
