Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

age 18+

A film about sex, that depicts the darkest aspects of it; not for kids

The film focuses on the darkest aspects of sex, and how it links to money, morality, high-society, and drugs. It is very good, but there is nothing here for anyone under 18.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 18+

Adults only and even then be careful

If you have to read an in depth synopsis to get this film, then it’s missed the mark . If you want to see a lot of naked women, by all means watch. If you want an entertaining evening with the wife, pick something else.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
