What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Wind River is a very violent crime/murder story set on a Native American reservation in Wyoming. There's a brutal rape scene, plus fighting, beating, and bludgeoning, lots of guns/shooting, gory dead bodies, and plenty of blood. A wolf is also shot and killed. Language is very strong in certain scenes, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and more. Secondary characters are shown dangerously, abusively drunk in one scene, and some characters smoke cigarettes. In one scene, a man and a woman kiss passionately and lie in bed together; sex is implied and mentioned. A few characters are scantily clad, but no actual nudity is shown. While some may raise eyebrows at a Native American story being told with white main characters (including Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen), the movie does make a point of sending a message about the shameful fact that -- unlike women in any other culture -- Native American women who go missing aren't tracked or counted. The movie marks the directorial debut of Taylor Sheridan, who wrote Sicario and Hell or High Water, and it's another smart, solid, but very mature story.
