TV 14 or Rated R for intense thematic elements, sequences of sexuality include some disturbing dialogue and references, violence, brief language, and for drug use.


While the sex scenes aren't graphic, masturbation scenes are, though without nudity.

A few disturbing dialogue scenes discussing rape that is vivid and unsettling.

The main story is about a young girl's rape and murder and hence plenty of discussion around those subjects and about sex. In terms of sexual content, you'll see many scenes of simulated sexual acts (including intercourse, oral sex, and masturbation) and brief shots of women in lingerie with no sensitive parts shown.


One man commits suicide from a far off shot. A man strangles another man. A man is beaten half to death. There are brawls.

Possible spoiler!

One scene features six (?) men punching and kicking their victim into coma while its on the floor and urinating on his face in great detail.


There is some profanity, but is not generally strong. Shit, damn, hell, religious profanities...

A few scenes of prolonged drug use.

There is use of coffein, alcohol, pills, magic mushrooms, cocaine, cannabis, and tobacco.
