- Friday, May 03, 2013
- Violence: Gunfire in several scenes, including one where a man is kidnapped at gunpoint and a violent demonstration. There are also scenes of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers. At one point, people take pictures of a man with his throat slit.
- Language/Profanity: A few four-letter words sprinkled throughout (sh-- is the most-used), plus instances where God’s name is misused.
- Sex/Nudity: Some discussion of sex. An unmarried couple has sex on several occasions—no nudity besides bare shoulders, but the scenes still don’t leave much to the imagination.
- Drugs/Alcohol: Social drinking depicted
