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 lesbian kisses her lover. A woman kisses her sister on the lips, and another woman does the same to her female neighbor. These two scenes aren't sexual; this is their way of communicating that they feel alienated and discontented.

Violence & Gore



Very little. 1 "fuck", and a few uses of "shit", "Jesus" and "damn"

some smoking.

A pregnant character contemplates suicide via overdosing on pills and has a brief but surreal dream in which she drowns.

A character commits suicide by drowning

A character commits suicide by falling from a window; no blood; the body isn't seen.
