What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Serenity is a dramatic thriller starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Baker Dill (McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain who's living a quiet life in a small town on Plymouth Island. His life is turned upside down when his ex-wife, Karen (Hathaway), tracks him down. She begs him to take her current husband (Jason Clarke), who's a violent man, and feed him to the sharks. As Baker struggles to do the right thing, his past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes there's more to the calm Plymouth Island than he thought. Expect lots of violence, including domestic abuse, as well as sexual content and strong language.
