The main focus of this film is a middle-aged man who becomes sexually obsessed with a 14-year-old girl.

A man is nude in a bathtub, but only his bare chest is seen.

A brief camp scene shows some teenage girls in tight, one-piece swimsuits.

A man is shot in the beginning of the movie, and it is implied that he dies.

No serious profane language, except once were it sounds like one of the main characters says the f word but it's hard to hear because another character is shouting over them. Occasional arguments between characters but the movie is fairly tame in this regard.

Characters drink and smoke socially throughout the film.

Following a certain tragedy, a character is shown in a state of shock, in a bathtub, nursing a glass of wine. It is implied that he is drunk.

Many may find themselves uncomfortable with the idea of a middle-aged man attempting to go for a fourteen-year-old girl.

A person throws herself in front of a car and kills herself. It is not shown, but it can be emotional.

Suggested MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for Mature Thematic Material, Smoking, and For Some Violence
