MPAA Rated R for some language

Sex & Nudity

  • Film concerns sexual exploitation of women, however this is handled VERY subtly by allusion and inference. (There are no direct sexual references in the film)
  • Very subtle references to executives having affairs in the workplace. A woman cleans a couch, someone later jokes "Never sit on that couch". The bosses wife calls into the office asking "Who is he with and what is he doing". A earring is found on the floor of the bosses office, and a woman picks it up and returns it to the girl.

Violence & Gore


  • Three clear uses of "fuck," four uses of "bull/shit."
  • One use of "Jesus" as profanity.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Jane smokes a cigarette.
  • Drugs, recreational: None
  • Alcohol: None

Frightening & Intense Scenes

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There is a scene where a woman goes into an office and expresses her concerns for a lady who she thinks might be getting taken advantage of by the boss. While it is not scary, it is the most intense scene in the movie, and the director made it so you feel uncomfortable watching it. It is very quiet, but it is still heartbreaking.
