Rated R for Strong Sexuality/Nudity, Language and Brief Violence (my rating reason)

The movie's premise is of a woman having an affair

There are several sex scenes as well as implied sex, and nudity. These scenes contain nudity (Kathleen's bare breasts & nipples, butt, including a scene of brief full frontal from a distance). In one of these scenes we see full side nudity of Kathleen and William while she lies on top of him. A young girl interrupts a woman giving oral sex to a man (no nudity). There is some sexual dialogue, including a few frank references.

A man is killed offscreen

very mild violence (a man is slapped across the face, a building blows up)

(9) "f.." words, most of them are used in a sexual context. (4) "Jesus"(1) Chr*st and there is other milder language here and there.
