This is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, because it is beautifully directed and perfectly acted. This film contains a prolonged sex scene with limited nudity i.e. upper body… male and female. The violence is extremely brief and not disturbing at all, but the power and emotional weight behind the violent outbursts are what make it more upsetting. Talk of rape, and very strong language mainly used in scenes of anger (very limited). There were multiple scenes of alcohol consumption and smoking, but nothing on the verge of misuse. There were many powerful and great messages and about caring for people in situations that are tough, kindness, and peace-keeping. Very good movie but very mature. Saw it in theaters and loved it a ton, looking forward to seeing it again.
