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

A few instances of mild sexual innuendo and several kisses, often passionate. A man passionately kissing a woman's neck and twice, we see a man kiss a woman's face and neck and grab at her clothed breasts. In three scenes a man and women either kissing passionately or sleeping in bed (in two of the scenes the man is shirtless and in one of the scenes the woman is wearing a slip; only her bare arms are visible). A man briefly touches a woman's bare knee as he leans toward her (she's wearing a short nightshirt). It's implied an unmarried woman is pregnant. Several woman wearing cleavage-revealing tops.

Violence & Gore

It's implied a woman gave herself an abortion (we see her bloody hand holding a bloody knife and there's blood all over her legs and clothing). A man jumps off a cliff and his lifeless body lying on the ground below. A man nearly drowns and a man falls while climbing up a ridge and breaks his leg. A man is punched and kicked in the face repeatedly (the man's lying on the ground with blood all over his face) and two men punch each other and one threatens another with a knife. A woman has a coughing fit and spits up some blood. A man with a badly scarred face and another with bloody sores all over his face. A man washes his bloody hands in a bowl (it's implied he helped deliver a baby).
