The following categories contain objective listings of film content which contribute to the subjective numeric Content ratings posted to the left and on the Home page.
The bohemian lifestyle is one where achievement and responsibility take a backseat to addictions and self-centeredness. This is honestly portrayed here through dialogue and actions.
Obscene Language: Around 70 obscenities, mostly the f-word.
Profanity: 2 misuses of Christs name.
Violence: The whole film deals with self-destructiveness. Their addition violates their dreams, their abilities and their goals. Because of the addition to cocaine, cigarettes and alcohol, an unborn baby dies. We see the dead baby. Hard to view, but it might horrify a young person enough to avoid the allure of drug use. In a fit of rage, the young woman throws an ash tray at her husband, causing stitches to be required. Blood: One bloody scene.
Sex: Four graphic sex scenes. In need of money, the woman prostitutes herself, her boyfriend so hooked that he is unwilling to prevent her from sacrificing herself.
Nudity: both male and female.
Sexual Dialogue/Gesture: Several sexually charged conversations; I didnt perceive the reason to be exploitive, but rather included to detail a destructive lifestyle.
Drugs: Drug use throughout.
Other: Full of despair and self-destruction, the film also shows the pain associated with trying to get and stay clean. For most, that is a losing battle.
Running Time: 108 minutes
Intended Audience: Older teens and adults
