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.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

It is implied that after leaving her husband, a woman became the owner of a brothel, but nothing is really shown or said. Adults and teens will easily pick up on this thought.

One character makes a few statements which are slightly suggestive, but not necessarily of sex.

Some mild kissing in a few scenes.

Violence & Gore

Some scuffles and fist-fights. A few characters end up slightly bloodied.



A young man gets drunk several times.

In one scene, a character smashes his head through a window. This scene is fairly jarring.
