For Sergeant Adam Schumann (MILES TELLER)—and many soldiers like him—the process of leaving combat back in Iraq was as seemingly simple as getting on that plane. But standing on the tarmac again in the arms of loved ones would turn out to be merely a first step in the long and exacting journey of actually returning home. Thank You for Your Service follows a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they’ve left the battlefield.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Thank You for Your Service is a serious, mature drama starring Miles Teller about soldiers dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Expect to see both graphic wartime violence (including gory injuries) and frightening domestic rage. A character is shot. There's strong language throughout ("f--k," "s--t," and more), largely in the context of soldiers blowing off steam but also to express frustration and in the heat of explosive anger. There's some crude sex talk, as well as a non-graphic sex scene that goes terribly wrong because of a character's mental state. Characters drink throughout, and there's some smoking and drug use (both prescription and illegal). Characters also have disturbing hallucinations. Despite the movie's themes of courage and empathy, it's all about PTSD, and the emotional agony that pushes people to the brink of suicide or other destructive behavior is prevalent throughout, making it too intense for most young viewers.
