What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sexy Beast is a cult British crime drama with plenty of violence, strong language, and full-frontal nudity. Retired gangster Gal (Ray Winstone) is forced into returning to his life of crime in the U.K. after a former associate, the vicious Don (Ben Kingsley), visits him in Spain. Because of the characters' criminality there are no positive messages or positive role models. Gal is an antihero who does what he must to survive, rather than try to make amends for the life that has brought him wealth at other people's expense, although he does occasionally show kindness and loyalty. Violence is intermittent but bloody, along with physical threats and intimidation. Characters commit murder in cold blood with no remorse. Weapons used include different types of firearms and blunt objects. Sex is referenced, implied, and briefly shown in some scenes, which include an orgy at an exclusive party. There is also full male and female nudity and a couple of graphic references to sexual acts. Swearing is strong and is used constantly, including multiple uses of "c--t" and "f--k," and some homophobic slurs. Drinking and smoking are occasional, in restaurants, pubs and bars, always by adults and rarely to excess, although there is a rowdy celebration at one point and in another scene characters drink at 5.00 a.m., but are not drunk.
