Violence & Gore

  • A young man walks through a neighborhood holding a large rifle and aims it through the window of a house at an unsuspecting girl. She does not notice, and he leaves without firing.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • A young man is seen to drink alcohol at a bar.
  • Some teenaged kids are seen to vape and smoke marijuana using bongs.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Despite being about a shooting at a theater, the film features no violence. This film could best be described as a fixation on the imminent threat of the shooting. A sense of dread permeates every scene, and much is left implied to the viewer.
  • A young man is shown to be very unstable throughout the film.
  • A group of veterans share their experiences and some are shown to be very visibly traumatized and emotional. This could be upsetting.
  • Many of the scenes in the film are uncomfortable and suggest a more violent motive beneath them.
