What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The Informer is a crime thriller about a special ops soldier who finds himself up against the mob, the FBI, and the NYPD. After getting arrested for assaulting someone while trying to protect his wife (Ana de Armas), Pete Koslow (Joel Kinnaman) gets a chance at an early release by becoming an informant for the FBI. He's sent undercover to investigate a crime boss known as The General. But during the operation that's meant to earn his release, Koslow is unintentially involved in the death of an undercover NYPD officer. The General wants Koslow to take the fall and run a drug smuggling scheme in prison, and the FBI wants him to do it to get evidence. But the police department wants him locked up for life for being a cop killer. Meanwhile, Koslow's wife and daughter find themselves in danger while he's behind bars. As the power struggle between all three groups rages, he comes up with a plan to get himself out of the mess. Expect lots of bloody violence, strong language, and drug references.
