Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the story is set in an L.A. music "scene," which means that characters drink, do drugs, and smoke. Characters seek fame, behave badly, cheat on each other, and fight briefly hand-to-hand; one girl is paid to seduce a young man. They use brief obnoxious language ("hard-on," "sucks", "screw"), argue, kiss, cuddle, and show romantic yearning, in handheld close-up (if you're averse to mobile framing, this film is not for you). One brief fight. The rock star phenom appears shirtless and sweaty on stage. Two agents discuss and then consume horse tranquilizers in a bar. Women wear revealing clothing, one young man appears in bed with two barely clad women.
