Sex & Nudity

  • We see two people in a bed on their wedding night, obviously having sex. They make groaning sounds and move around under the covers, breasts are visible.
  • Boys go to a strip club and topless dancers can be seen in the background.
  • A boy walks up some stairs without any pants on. His bare butt is shown.
  • A man wearing nothing but a trenchcoat jumps on a trampoline. His butt is shown.

Violence & Gore

  • A man beats a young boy with a wet towel.
  • A man gets into a physical fight with a boy.


  • One use of "shit" and other mild profanities.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The main character smokes constantly.
  • We see people consuming alcohol.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film is about a boy growing up and becoming crazy.
  • The scene in which the boy is beaten with the wet towel alludes to a more savage beating (water droplets splash against the wall, giving the appearance of blood splatters), and is somewhat disturbing.
