What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Mustang is a drama about a violent prisoner (Matthias Schoenaerts) who finds redemption after learning how to train a wild horse. It's a simple, soulful movie that promotes compassion and is gently told, but it also has many mature moments. Violence can be strong and shocking: A character loses his temper and punches a horse, a character is viciously stabbed (his body twitches, and blood oozes out of the wound), and a character is thrown from and stomped by a horse (his bloody face is shown). There's also fighting, angry shouting, a spoken story about a man beating up his wife, and a scary sequence during a storm. Language is also very salty, with multiple uses of "f--k," "s--t," and more. The drug ketamine is stolen and prepared, and someone snorts it. Men shower shirtless, and there's very brief sex-related dialogue.
