Sex & Nudity

  • There's a good deal of sexual talk and swear words connected to sex.
  • There's an extended but very mild love scene between two older teens. We see thrusting under the covers and that's about it.
  • A few slightly graphic scenes of sexual activity between teens at a party, including a guy being under a girl's skirt in the bathroom.

Violence & Gore

  • There are a few scenes of teen boys brawling, often leaving black eyes or split lips. The most intense one has a young man break a wine bottle and almost kill another teen he's been hitting, but he stops at the last minute.

Profanity

  • Several very strong swear words, including the F word used continuously. Strong sexual talk as well.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Older teens are shown getting high and drinking more than once, usually at parties. In one scene, a boy passes out and has to be carried away by his friends.
  • The main character and his mother both have drug issues. She is absent for the film, but her drug issues and the fact that she's in rehab are mentioned repeatedly. The main character finds creative ways to get high any time he's really stressed and at one point vomits from taking too may pills at once.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The main character suffers from repressed grief and anger at his mother's addiction and his father's death, which is implied to be a possible suicide. Twice he stands by a subway and looks like he might jump or fall in the tracks, which is how his father died. More than once he has a breakdown.
  • The film is mostly hopeful, while dealing with very serious issues. The teens in the film are around 17 and older, and engage in very risky behavior.
