Parents need to know that Love Me Instead is a Turkish drama that looks at the disruption of the lives of good people. Social pressures, drug use, a scarcity of good jobs, and other factors send one man to prison and another into debilitating debt. A prison guard escorts a prisoner to see his daughter. Given the slow, dark, nature of the narrative, the setting, and subject matter, including prostitution, drug dealing, addiction, and gun violence, this will probably will be most suitable for older teens with patience and interest in other cultures. A mob boss tells a minion to shoot someone in the leg. A dozen or so people die in a bloody shootout. A man hits another and causes a bloody head gash. A girl dies of a drug overdose. We hear that a girl is forced into prostitution. A man recounts being in love with one woman but getting drunk and having sex with another, an act that changed his life. Adults smoke cigarettes. Drug dealing and addiction, even among kids, are subjects. Drug paraphernalia are shown. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," "bastard," "bitch," "crap," "ass," "screw," "d--k," "hell," and "whore." With English subtitles.
