MPAA Rated R for sexuality, language and a scene of violence

Sex & Nudity

  • A man caresses and kisses a woman's bare abdomen, legs, he takes off her panties, and he climbs on top of her and they kiss passionately. They are shown having sex.
  • A woman bathes (we see her bare breasts, abdomen, thighs and part of her pubic region), a man joins her (upper body seen), he caresses her and kisses her knees and legs and we see her bare buttocks as she gets out of the tub. Plenty of nudity, but no male/female genital (graphic) nudity, and scene is not sexual.
  • A man undresses a woman and caresses her breasts. No male nudity shown.
  • A woman sits in a chair with her hand in her pants (she is apparently masturbating, however we don't see any movement) and a man watches her, and a man puts his hand in the back of a woman's pants and they kiss passionately.
  • A woman wearing a slip climbs on a man's lap in bed, pulls down one strap of the slip (we see her bare shoulders and back), they kiss and lie back on the bed.
  • A man and woman have sex in a public bathroom. We see her bare buttock from the side and her bare breast as he kisses her chest. This is a rather strong sex scene, but there is no male or female genital (graphic) nudity in the process.
  • A man and woman have sex in a movie theater: she sits on his lap and we see them moving rhythmically and hear them moaning.
  • A man tries to force himself on a woman. She refuses but then consents; he takes off her pants and his shirt; we see her pubic region. They then have sex against the wall in a hallway with thrusting and moaning. No male nudity however.

Violence & Gore


  • About 15 f-words (3) goddamn's and other language. Sexual dialogue is strongly and frequently used.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Minor alcohol usage - social drinking, an occasional glass of wine or scotch in the house, etc.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • One intense scene involving violence which is shown again in a flashback.
  • You feel very upset for the husband.
  • The significant sexual content of the film and the general subject of infidelity may be intense for some viewers.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • In one scene a man is hit twice on the head with a snow globe. He bleeds profusely and falls over, dead. It is bloody and brutal. We see this again in flashback.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene where Edward confesses not only to killing Paul but to have wanted to have killed Connie is upsetting. There , is a threat of violence in a domestic setting and there is the emotional distress of the husband and wife.
