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

This movie presents nearly continuous suspense as a character looks for a hit-an-run driver who is hiding in plain sight. Scenes of verbal tension between spouses, as well as a divorced couple, occur frequently. A young child is hit and killed by a vehicle (some detail is shown). A character with a firearm breaks into a home, then kidnaps and forcibly confines a man. A weapon is pointed at a man and at the gunman’s own head. A married couple briefly begins to engage in sexual activity (no nudity is seen). Language includes half-a-dozen sexual expletives along with some other moderate and mild profanities and terms of deity. A man drinks to relieve stress.
