Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Me and Orson Welles...
Deception is rampant in this movie about the aspirations of the cast and crew behind the curtains of the theatrical world. Characters lie about their whereabouts and activities, philandering pastimes and adulterous relationships, as well as to avoid negative consequences and manipulate others. Mild and moderate profanities and terms of deity are frequently heard, along with use of sexual slangs and a crude finger gesture. Sexual relationships are discussed freely, including asides about infidelity, speculations about who has slept with whom, and wagers over what men will be able to coax certain women into their beds. Sexual relationships are also implied between some characters: one of these couples consists of a teenaged boy and an older woman. During a dramatization of an assassination, a dagger is plunged into a mans chest and blood drips from the wound onto the floor. Actors are seen with artificial blood on their fingers. A stagehand falls down some stairs. Angry outbursts result in pushing and shoving, along with verbal threats. Smoking is depicted frequently and one character is usually seen with a cigar. Drinking is a regular social activity (a teen engages in this activity too), and alcohol is used to calm nerves before a big performance.
