  • A mother becomes a crackhead and prostitutes herself for money. No sex shown just scenes of her entering a bedroom with a man.
  • 6/10
  • A teen boy is seen having anal sex with with a woman from behind. Nothing graphic is shown and they're both shown from the waist up, fully clothed. There is a lot of moaning. The moaning is quite loud for this scene.
  • Two teen boys kiss on a beach. One begins to unbuckle the other's belt; in the next scene, it's implied one is masturbating the other (it's shown from behind). One moans in pleasure and his grip in the sand tightens, implying orgasm.

  • Some mentions of "getting head".

Violence & Gore

  • A group of kids chase another kid into a crack house. The kid hides inside while the group throws rocks from outside.
  • A man threatens to harm another man for not counting money correct, but then tells him he is just joking.
  • 5/10
  • Two teen boys fight each other; one encourages the other to stay down as he's forced to beat him. The beating is quite brutal as there is blood splatter on the ground and a brief blood spurt when he is punched.
  • A teen boy submerges his face in ice water to dull the wounds resulting from a beating. There is a lot of blood running from his nose.
  • A teen boy hits someone with a chair and he falls unconscious.


  • 7/10

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • 7/10
  • Moderate drinking and smoking.
  • A plot element is that the protagonist's mother is a crack addict. She isn't seen doing crack at any point but her withdrawals are shown, and are very intense. She is seen in a halfway house at one point.
  • A woman snorts coke off a mirror in one scene.
  • Some people are shown smoking blunts.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A mother recovering from crack addiction tells her son that she still and has always loved him. He cries and tells her he hates her.
  • 8/10
  • The depiction of homophobia, while not as bad as films like "Shank", may still upset.
  • The main character's mother is a crack addict and it is very hard to watch her withdrawals.
  • A fight insues and with two teenage boys which is quite brutal.
  • Overall Rating: 33/50, A pretty moderate R rating but still has some uncomfortable/inappropriate elements. Most of the drugs, sex, and violence is used to show how hard it is to live in an urban environment.
