Violence & Gore
- Contains one discreet, implied scene of a man being shot in the head. The actual impact and injury detail is not depicted on-screen.
- Another character is shot in the arm and the wound is briefly visible (and is lacking in detail). The impact is mitigated by the fact that the wound is concealed by the character's hand.
- A man is punched in the face.
- Two characters are briefly punched in the groin by another character.
- Contains two uses of mild coarse language (i.e. "shit").
- Also contains occasional use of very mild language (e.g. "ass").
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- Contains infrequent instances of casual smoking and drinking as a few scenes are set in a casino.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- The plot revolves around a character who witnesses a murder (the actual murder occurs off-camera) and is forced into a witness relocation program by posing as a nun. The threat of violence by the mobsters may prove frightening for especially young viewers, particularly during instances where the mobsters threaten others by pointing guns at them.
