Sex & Nudity
Sex & Nudity Reason
Violet teases Dana (a male jock) about performing oral sex.
In the first few minutes of the film, full rear nudity of a teenage boy.
Teenage boys grab their genitals in a rather offensive manner when Maddy is seen taking pictures.
A teacher sexually harasses teen girls, getting close to their faces and touching their chests. Nothing explicit is shown.
A woman asks her daughter if her boyfriend slept over, implying that they may have had sex.
In a scene which lasts several minutes, Legs removes her top, takes a needle, and starts drawing a tattoo on her right breast. There is a close up shot of the needle being pushed into the flesh of her breast, and her nipple and areola are visible from close up. Legs proceeds to create a similar tattoo on the other girls' breasts (some which show bare breasts, others which wear a bra). Legs remains topless throughout the scene. The scene is not sexual, though there is romantic tension between Legs and Maddy.
In a supermarket, Violet and Rita talk explicitly about sex while practicing putting a condom on a zucchini.
Romantic tension is present between Maddy and Legs throughout the film. They have a tender moment where Maddy asks Legs how she'd feel if she told her she loved her. Legs reiterates with "I'd take however you'd want me to."

Frightening & Intense Scenes
Frightening & Intense Scenes Reason
The scene where Legs teases Maddie about her fear of heights is a little intense. Seeing as she is walking on top of a bridge, and accidentally drops her art portfolio.
Violence against women is a key theme for the film; many scenes show large men and teen boys intimidating, harassing, and attacking teen girls.
The relationship between Goldie and her father is strained and many viewers will either be upset or disturbed with the physical abuse.
The final scene with Legs and Maddy is a bittersweet moment.
