Parents need to know that Trishna is a re-working of Thomas Hardy's classic novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles, set in modern-day India. It's about a poor woman who becomes a tragic victim after being trapped in a relationship with a wealthy man. There's some isolated bloody violence, as well a car crash and uncomfortable sex scenes that border on rape. There's no nudity, but plenty of obvious sex acts between the two lead characters. Language is very infrequent, but one minor character uses several swear words in the space of one scene, including "f--k," and a song is heard that repeats the word "bitch." Characters drink and smoke cigarettes socially (and, it's suggested, smoke pot as well). The film is dry and depressing, and though some Thomas Hardy fans may admire it, many teens won't be interested.
