Sex & Nudity

  • A woman undresses before jumping in water and breasts are shown briefly but clearly.
  • A couple begin sensually kissing, then undressing each other as the man rubs the woman's clothed breasts and crotch. They lie down in bed (sex is off-screen).
  • A man and a woman are shown having sex briefly in a haystack, but the only skin visible is sideboob and her back as she's riding him.
  • Some sensual kissing between couples.

Violence & Gore

  • Occasional scenes of a husband physically abusing his wife, and at one point, his son as well.
  • A man has a nightmare about hanging himself (it only lasts 3 seconds) and starts to trash his room after he wakes up from it.
  • A man pushes another man into a pile of trash bags with his motorcycle. No blood is shown.
  • Spousal abuse is present. The leading character strikes his girlfriend. A suicide attempt is heavily implied, as the after effects are seen and the gunshot is heard.


  • About 10 uses of f*ck, s**t, h*ll, d**m, 1 f*ggot and 1 motherf*cker.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Since the plot revolves around band performances on the stage in the '80's club scene, alcohol usage is visible, as is smoking. There is no promotion of either in the film and any reference is entirely within context

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Scenes containing abuse and the scene depicting a suicide attempt may be considered frightening by some viewers.
