This movie is not violent, at all. Theres no sex-scenes or any sex related things in it, other than kissing (that goes on for 3 seconds). Yes, they swear sometimes, but not anything extreme. This movie is fantastic, my favorite film of 2020. There is a lot of talking, but theres really not an not child-friendly movie.

14 because this film is complex

There is a bit of language sprinkled throughout but it’s not at all excessive, and sex and violence are both extremely low. I give this a 14 because it’s very complex and it took me a day to figure out what the hell was even going on. Its worth a watch because it is a genius film, and it’s also hilarious.
