Did we miss something on diversity?

Porn Exposure

Please be advised that I work with victims of Sex Trafficking, Sex Addicts, and Betrayed Partners and this movie has been highly triggering for them because of the pornography that is displayed. When the lead actor is in the film store you can clearly see the wall behind him filled with XXX videos. A kid might not notice but I am leaving this review because the CommonSense Media review says Sex Is Not Present, you have the right to know. Other than that this is by far my favorite suspense film for 14+.

This title has:

Too much sex
