Adequate but disappointing book adaptation.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that a main character is dragged away and shot while his friends wait and listen. There is some prison brawling. After Alejandra sleeps with Cole, she loses her family's love. Frequent coarse language is used in conversation, but no extreme expletives. Cole lies to Rocha about riding into Mexico with Blevins and pursues a secret affair with his daughter. Cole and Alejandra kiss and swim naked (viewers only see shoulders). Later, we see them in bed together. Cole must fight in order to stay alive in prison. Both he and Rawlins get beat up, and Cole ends up stabbing a man to death. There is some gunfighting.
