Perfect for Mature Teens and Adults

Very good emotional drama between two families and the struggle for this house. Some mild language with about 7 F words in all but 2 sex scenes in which one is mildly graphic. 5/5 :)
What other families should know
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Incredibly depressing

This is an excellent film. Its very deep but extremly dark and depressing. Violence: Extreme. Characters attempt or commit suicide and nearly all characters are killed. Overall, the theme of the movie is very dark and depressing. Language: Some f-words but the swearing is not frequent. Sexual content: One brief scene. Drug Content: A character becomes an alcoholic. A character attemps suicide by swallowing a bunch of pills. This is an excellent film but is very dark and not for kids.
