Low-budget war drama has diversity, violence, language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Red Snow is a drama set in Afghanistan and Canada, about a Gwich'in-Canadian soldier, Dylan (Asivak Koostachin), who is captured by the Taliban. Played against a backdrop of war and persecution, there is some violence and language. But the movie also examines themes such as family, love, and overcoming differences across both cultures. There is strong representation of minority and repressed cultures, which include a Gwich'in-Canadian community and a Pashtun family in Afghanistan. While female characters do not feature heavily among the main cast, it is acknowledged how women in both cultures are judged more harshly than men, threatened, and oppressed. Violence features throughout, in keeping with the wartime setting. There are beatings, shootings, bloody deaths, and injury. A woman is seen self-harming, which eventually leads to her death. A young couple who are in love are heavily criticized for their romantic relationship. There is some kissing and sleeping in the same bed, but nothing graphic and no explicit sex scenes. There is some swearing -- used in scenes of heightened tension to express characters' anger and fear -- including variants of "f--k."
