MPAA Rated R for some language, sex-related and violent images, and brief drug use

Sex & Nudity

  • Some sexual conversation.
  • A scene of very heavy kissing between a priest and a lay woman.
  • An underage prostitute gets into a truck with a man but a priest intervenes before anything sexual happens.

Violence & Gore

  • Most of the violent action takes place off screen. What is listed below is mostly the results.
  • We see a murdered drug dealer's body. Very bloody face and a small pool of blood under his head.
  • In a 1944 scene, a village in Europe is seen being bombed. We don't see anybody hit or killed except for a mother carrying her unconscious daughter. The scene is intense.
  • This isn't violent but a statue does cry blood and sensitive viewers could find it disturbing.
  • We see some wounded soldiers in a cart during a bombing raid. Some are missing limbs but are bandaged so there is no visible blood. Still, it could be disturbing to some viewers.
  • We see a homeless man briefly from a distance with a bloody wound on his head either dead or passed out.
  • We see a cigarette burn on a child's arm. The result of parental abuse.


  • About 8 uses of f**k, 3+ uses of s**t, 3+ uses of goddamn, 1 use each of ass, assholes, whore, slut, slit (presumably a derogatory word for a woman), and balls (for male genitals "busting my balls") and possibly a few other milder profanities.
  • The words "Mick" and "Pollack" are each used once by a priest and although they not necessarily intended to be bigoted some Irish and Polish people might find them offensive.
  • Most of the profanity is in the first half of the film. Some of the swearing(although none of the F words) are used by priests.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Scenes of alcohol consumption with at least on incidence of a priest getting drunk.
  • Several scenes of cigarette smoking.
  • We see a man shoot up another person with drugs(presumably heroin) in a bad neighborhood.
  • We see a man breathing into a paper bag possibly sniffing glue.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • A priest discovers some Satanic drawings with a small amount of blood on them that are quite disturbing and blasphemous.
  • A bombing raid scene in 1944 is intense.
  • A priest visits a bad neighborhood and the conditions of poverty, drug abuse, and prostitution are quite disturbing.
  • The film as a whole is quite dramatically intense on a religious level.
