What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Persecuted is a faith-based thriller about wrongful accusation. There's some violence against women: A young woman is hired to pose for fake photos as part of a plot to set up a respected evangelist, pretending to have sex with him (nothing graphic is shown), and is then murdered. Later it's reported that she was raped. The main character is drugged and beaten up and spends a large portion of the film with bloody cuts on his face. A man is shot through the temple, and the movie climaxes in a chase and shootout, with many minor characters killed. The main character is said to be a recovered alcoholic and drug addict. Other characters are seen drinking champagne and smoking cigars. Language isn't an issue.
  • Families can talk about Persecuted's violence. How is it used? Is it essential to the story? Is any of it too graphic to get the point across?
  • What are the movie's themes? Is it for or against religious freedom in America? Why do you think that? Who do you think the movie is intended to appeal to?
  • The main character is honest about his former abuse of alcohol, gambling, and drugs. Does that make you respect him more or less? Is he a positive role model?
