Warning!!! Not for Children!!!
Warning!!! Not for Children!!!

This movie contains a RAPE scene!!! Yet, it is not rated! It contains other Sexual and nudity scenes as well as violence and foul language.

I would have been able to enjoy the story's message much better had I NOT taken my 11 year old with me. This movie should be 'R' rated I read Bernard Malamud's "The Assistant" many years ago, and it stuck with me. When I heard it would screen at a local Temple in San Diego, I jumped on the opportunity to view it with my son. I tried to find the rating for it but couldn't. Moreover, when I asked about rating before purchasing tickets I was told it may contain some objectionable language but I was assured there would be no sex. I guess they neglected to pre-view the movie.

My advice: go see it, but leave the kids at home.
