Rating & Content Info
Why is Boyhood rated R? Boyhood is rated R by the MPAA for language including sexual references, and for teen drug and alcohol use.
Violence: Adults argue with each other. Children and spouses are verbally and physically abused—a man throws things at them, threatens them and hits them. Bullying occurs, sometimes between children and sometimes between adults and children. Frightened children lock themselves in their bedrooms to avoid a drunken and abusive man. Teens play recklessly with tools at a construction site. Teens lie to their parents.
Sexual Content: Sexual relations are implied between adults, as well as teen couples (one young couple is shown in bed together). Teens embrace and kiss. Youth engage in detailed sexual discussions using crude anatomical terms and language.
Language: The sexual expletive and variations are used frequently. Scatological slang, profanity, cursing, and vulgar expressions are also included. Some ethno-cultural slurs are heard.
Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters drink alcohol frequently, and some characters are depicted as alcoholics. A drunken character gets a child to buy him more liquor—and the storeowner agrees to sell it to the minor. Characters smoke. Illegal drugs are used by teens (shown), and some are depicted as being high.
