Sex & Nudity


Violence & Gore

Chris Coopers character is trying to organize a union for the miners in West Virginia. The miners have been very badly treated. They tell storys of beatings and cave ins that have occurred.(beatings that came from the companys guards, and cave ins that were of the result of the people not having the proper equipment) In one scene we actually see a cave in while it is not bloody or graphic it is quite intense. Overall there's nothing explicit or gross it's just talk.


The occasional "damn" and "hell" nothing strong.

The workers hang out in a bar, they drink and smoke but don't use drugs.

The story's could frighten some children as well as the cave in.
