Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for pervasive language, sexual content, drug and alcohol use, some violent behavior/disturbing images – all involving minors
Aside from a couple minor issues I had with this film, I loved it. It just felt incredibly real. I didn’t feel like I was watching actors. I felt like I was watching the lives of these kids unfold, and that those lives would just continue unfolding even when the camera wasn’t rolling.
