When George gets pushed over the boat and drowns until death. Intense.

Also at the beginning when Sam's character is getting beat up by George.

After George dies the entire film is very sad and emotionally intense. Especially when the children come clean to the police and Georges mother.

Rated R for language, sexual references, teen drug and alcohol use
