Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Young Ones is a revenge-driven, futuristic sci-fi movie set in a world where water is scarce. It's pretty violent; characters are shot and killed (blood spurts are shown), and one is killed with a rock to the head. A baby is sold on the black market, and characters fight and argue. Language includes several uses of "f--k" and a few uses of "s--t." Elle Fanning's character is pregnant, and she's seen kissing and showering with her boyfriend (nothing sensitive shown). One of the characters is said to have a drinking problem; he drinks hard liquor in a few scenes. Several other characters also drink heavily. Teen sci-fi fans will be interested, as will fans of the three younger stars -- Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Sexual Content

A young woman is pregnant. She and her boyfriend take a shower together (close-up, nothing sensitive shown) and are shown kissing. Minor innuendo.

Violence

Characters are shot and killed, with blood splatters. One character is killed with a rock to the head; he lies bleeding for a while before dying. Some fighting and punching, and a knife is introduced into a fight. A donkey breaks its leg and must be shot (the break is shown, but the shot happens off screen). A baby is sold on the black market, and the baby's father is shot through the stomach, with a spurt of blood. General tension in the air, and characters argue frequently.

Language

Several uses of "f--k," plus a few uses of "s--t" and "bulls--t," as well as "hell," "piss," and "goddamn."

Social Behavior

Mostly a story of victims, violence, and revenge. But the setting -- a future in which water is scarce -- is worth discussing. What would happen if water became scarce and the government started controlling it?

Consumerism

Coca-Cola is shown.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The father is referred to as someone with a drinking problem. In a few scenes, he falls off the wagon and drinks hard liquor from a bottle. He delivers several bottles to the water workers, who also like to sit and drink and get drunk.
