Parents need to know that with its scenes of domestic violence and frequent profanity, Sweet Dreams pushes the limit of its PG-13 rating. While the movie tells the story of Patsy Cline's rise to stardom and features her indelible musical performances, the emotional emphasis is on the passionate and abusive relationship between Patsy and her husband, Charlie. Their fights move from early scenes of mutual angry words to Charlie's ultimately graphic and brutal beating of his wife. In addition, there is a devastating auto accident which results in bloody injuries and ugly scarring. The final action is suspenseful and horrifying as a plane crashes and explodes with four passengers inside. Drinking, drunkenness, and smoking are continuous throughout and alcoholism plays an important role in the tragedy of Patsy's life. There's lots of swearing and name-calling: "ass," "s--t," "hell," "t-ts," "screw," and more.
