Movie Parental Guide

nudity Two adult males playfully skinny-dip in the moonlit ocean; bare buttocks are dimly visible in several shots. No sex. An adult male removes his wet clothes in front of another; there is a brief shot of his bare buttocks. No sex. Two adult males in a 16-year committed relationship, kiss each other during flashback. There is a black and white photo dated '47, in which a solo adult male sits naked, presumably, on a beach; the placement of his bent leg obscures his genital region. After bumping into each other outside a liquor store at dusk, an adult male discreetly flirts with another man. They only chat a bit while smoking cigarettes, before parting ways. Two adult males mention, without detail, having previously slept with their current female friends with whom they remain platonically close.
violence We see images of a nightmare during the intro scene: there is an adult male's dead body lying next to his lifeless pet dog, after an icy winter car crash. An adult male is planning his suicide; he practices shooting himself with an unloaded gun, and proceeds to purchase bullets. While swimming in the ocean, an adult male suffers a minor cut to his forehead; it is cleaned and bandaged at home.
profanity About 3 or 4 religious profanities, including 2 uses of "goddamn". "Shit" is uttered approximately 2 times and a limited number of milder profanities are present, including at least one utterance of "ass".
alcohol An adult female smokes regularly in her scenes, as a supporting character. An adult male smokes about four times in the entire film. Several adults drink socially with each other in a few scenes. An adult male chases down aspirin with Scotch, at one point.
frightening A profoundly depressed, grief-stricken adult male begins an attempt at suicide, but is soon interrupted much to his chagrin. While some viewers may find this amusing within the film's dark comedic tone, others could potentially find it disturbing. An adult male has a heart attack and dies. *01/07/2016: Categories edited to better clarify and succinctly report film facts while avoiding unnecessary highly-descriptive spoilers, subjective judgments, and personal opinions as prompted by IMDb guidelines.
