This is a very intense, complex political drama; I'm sure lots of kids who aren't very aware of politics/don't care wouldn't appreciate this movie. There are references about implied sex, a reference to a rape, and a suicide is spoken of from an overdose of drugs. There is consumerism, and plenty of drinking. The language is in RIDICULOUS proportions! There is SO much cursing it is unbelievable. C--k, pr--k, a--, ---hole, Godd-mn, d-mn, cr-p, t-ts, s--t, h-ll, d--k, SOB, and many other words are used in excess. The word f--k is use between 50-70 times. It is constantly used in many scenes expressing frustration, stress, anger, etc. This is DEFINITELY not for anyone under 16, maybe for anyone who is 17+. There is WAY too much cursing for kids to handle. Good for 17+, anyone else, you should "pause".
