The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

At a party for Charles Kane, there are several women that are scantily clad.

There is a scene which includes the buttocks of several nude statues, though this is brief and non-sexual.

Some of the banter between Charles Kane and his first wife could be considered sexual, although it's very subtle. Later, an affair is implied between Kane and his (soon-to-be) second wife, resulting in scandal and loss of public elections.

Violence & Gore

A man slaps his wife.

A man threatens to break someone's neck.

A boy shoves a sled into a man's stomach, knocking him into the snow.

After his second wife walks out on him, Kane goes berserk and tears her bedroom apart.

Profanity

One use of very mild language (darn).

Smoking and some casual drinking throughout

PG for thematic elements and smoking
