It was ok

Breakdown with as little spoilers as possible. Since this is a site for parents, I'll just write down the things I wish I would have known ahead of time. Sex: There are a couple of butt shots (male). Men and women shower together in a locker room type setting, but no nudity is shown. A woman is in a bikini while in a pool and does some grinding against her husband. The sensuality is there, but doesn't get too heavy. Alien-ish people "connect" with their hands and it seems to have a sensual vibe, which was honestly a little weird. Violence: Spousal abuse escalates over time as the experiment goes on, resulting in fairly disturbing scenes if you are triggered by that sort of thing. There is some blood/gore during medical procedures as well as fight scenes/deaths. Children are put in threatening/scary situations, but that's as far as it goes.

Everything you need to know

This is a great movie. I’m surprised it gets little to no attention. Csm is wrong about two unarmed woman and a child being killed. They are only threatened. When it comes to violence, a woman is tossed out of a window in the dark, some soldiers are slashed with some blood shown but hard to see because of the dark. A man is cut in the throat with visible blood shown. Violence is2.5/5 for a rated Tv-ma movie. The main reason why it’s tv-ma I suppose is because of the language. F*ck is said about 5-6 times spread out throughout the film. So it’s said briefly. But not excessive at all. This movie does really touch you emotionally. Kind of sad. But gives a positive message about hope.
