We see two people in a bed on their wedding night, obviously having sex. They make groaning sounds and move around under the covers, but no nudity is seen. (Very brief)

Boys go to a strip club and topless dancers can be seen in the background.

A boy walks up some stairs without any pants on. His bare butt is shown.

A man wearing nothing but a trenchcoat jumps on a trampoline. His butt is shown.

A man beats a young boy with a wet towel.

A man gets into a physical fight with a boy.

One use of "shit" and other mild profanities.

The main character smokes constantly.

We see people consuming alcohol.

The film is about a boy growing up and becoming crazy.

The scene in which the boy is beaten with the wet towel alludes to a more savage beating (water droplets splash against the wall, giving the appearance of blood splatters), and is somewhat disturbing.

Rated PG-13 for nudity/sensuality and intense thematic elements
