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.
- One sudden assault, and several intense chase scenes (on foot) through the streets of New York, with occasional gunshots.
- 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.
- 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.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
