Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this indie movie -- part thriller, part drama -- may prove too offbeat and experimental for teens, even though it stars (500) Days of Summer's Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It asks some big questions about family and relationships but doesn't really answer them, and there's not a lot to take away from watching. Expect a fair amount of profanity (including "f--k" and "s--t", a brief sexual interlude with no outright nudity, and some gunfire that results in death (though it's not particularly graphic).

Sexual Content

One sex scene with brief flashes of partial nudity.

Violence

One sudden assault, and several intense chase scenes (on foot) through the streets of New York, with occasional gunshots.

Language

Regular but not constant swearing, including "s--t" and "f--k" and "damn."

Social Behavior

The film asks "what if" and explores the results of different choices, large and small, but it doesn't really offer any clear answers to the questions it poses.

Consumerism

A Chase bank and a Palm Treo both play important roles and are mentioned by name several times.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking at parties by characters who are of age.
