Okay, yes it has nudity and sex, but that's not what it's ABOUT
Alright, I understand the parental reviews because, yes, there was quite a bit of nudity and sex in the film. There was a scene with an (unaroused) man full frontal naked, but no vaginas so there was that. The thing is, there were a grand total of two sex scenes with Jennifer Lawrence in which it was really, truly consensual sex. The only other consensual sex scene was two people in a shower but that... didn't go well. To me, as a 17 year old whose parents let me go, mind you, the movie wasn't about sex or "sexy times," it was about the horrors of a communistic and corrupt government and what individuals are capable of doing to not only survive, but to work toward change. I came to the movie both because I'm in love with Jennifer Lawrence and because I wanted to watch a movie about spies and the like. Honestly, I didn't expect for the movie to go as well as it did when I noticed the reviews. The official reviews on this site focused way too much on the sexual parts of the movie, rather than the strong female lead who wasn't emotionally closed off or falling all over herself to be with The Strong Man. This film was about a woman willing to do whatever it took to keep her mother and herself safe, and risking it all to try to help change the future of her country from the inside (despite my desperately wanting her to turn tail and run to America). Oh, and another amazing thing was that Nick (the male lead-ish) was not a Cold Strong Hero Man, he was soft and emotionally vulnerable, but still strong and great at his job.
Overall, it was a great movie about the strength of people and the way they can undergo anything if they have something to believe in.
(Also, this is my first review on this site and I honestly am really irritated that adults get the just generic "it has sex" options below the review box and I get "too much sex." I was planning on including the options saying sex, drinking, swearing, violence, etc, but since they're phrased in a way that makes me out to be a helpless child, I'm protesting them.)
