Sex & Nudity

  • Women in skimpy clothes dancing provocatively. Nothing is shown

Violence & Gore

  • Very brief mention of an incident where a teenager set paper on fire in a bathroom. Nobody was hurt.
  • In conversation, it comes up that a man hit his girlfriend so hard that she had a titanium plate grafted into her jaw. The moment is less than 5 seconds.
  • The movie revolves around the real-life murder of four women who were sex workers. Although a great deal of the film shows the impact their deaths had on their families and communities, there is an element of crime/thriller plot, including crime scenes, descriptions of bodies, investigations by police, and more.

Profanity

  • 9 uses is shit, 3 uses of hell, 2 uses of ass and asshole, 7 uses of goddamn, 20 uses of fuck, sob used once, dick used once.
  • Numerous f-bombs including Jesus F*** Christ

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Characters smoke cigarettes.
  • Mention of prescription medication that is hinted to treat mood swings/bipolar disorder. A character has stopped taking the medicine and another character blames the medication lapse for a violent incident.
  • A stressed character is briefly seen opening a prescription medication bottle. We infer she is misusing medication to manage her distress.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Unsettling and eerie scene where a soft song plays while a terrified woman is fleeing from someone in a car who we understand will murder her. The scene is roughly 30 seconds.
  • The very nature of the movie means that there is a lot of conflicting information, family trauma and drama, intense emotion and grief, and upsetting criminal process stuff (including unsympathetic responses from media and police).
  • Brief mention of bulimia in a child.
  • Brief mention of a parent so impoverished she was forced to neglect her child in order to be at work at all hours.
  • Mention of bipolar disorder in a child that her parent was too low income to get adequate treatment for. There were negative ripple effects.
