Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Breach...

Although Robert Hanssen is a frequent attendee at church services, he is accused of entertaining strippers and prostitutes as well as making homemade porno videos. While most of his sexual practices are only talked about, some brief shots from the videos are shown. Two agents disobey Bureau policy by consuming alcohol while off duty. One of them drives while under the influence of alcohol and later wildly fires a gun in the direction of his partner. After two double agents are discovered, they are called back to their homeland and executed by a shot in the head. A man misuses his religious beliefs to coerce others to change their lifestyle. Infrequent vulgarities, terms of Deity, a homosexual slur and a strong expletive used in a non-sexual situation are also included in the script.

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Breach.

Chris Cooper often plays a rough-around-the-edges kind of character. In The Bourne Supremacy, he portrays a highly skilled agent that sets out to bring down one of his own men. In Seabiscuit, he takes on the role of a crusty, old horse trainer who is given a second chance to prove his skills.
