MPAA Rated R for some disturbing material, and language.

Sex & Nudity

  • Very, very mild. You hear moans for about two seconds outside a house, then the scene cuts to a couple in bed. They are clothed and breathing heavily, out of breath from trying to have sex. Very mild, PG-13 level. In another scene the same couple kisses and he put his hand in her shirt on her breast, while saying suggestive things. Very brief

Violence & Gore


  • Infrequent use of the f word and other more mild profanities. The language is R rated but not strong, and hardly ever used. Mild for an R rating

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Drugs are used to execute death row prisoners, and characters are seen drinking. In one scene a character is drunk and someone drives them home.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film deals with heavy themes and at times has an extremely depressing tone. You should not watch this film if you are severely depressed
