What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Z for Zachariah is a postapocalyptic drama that focuses on a love triangle between three survivors of nuclear devastation. There aren't any battle scenes or grisly effects, but scenes do have underlying tension and vague threats, and characters speak about horrible things they saw after the disaster. A death/murder is hinted at but is left ambiguous; rifles are shown and fired. A woman kisses two different men; sex is implied in one case. She's shown in her bra and is intimate and comfortable with a man (i.e. dancing). Brief language includes uses of "f--k," "s--t," and "damn." Adult characters get drunk on beer and wine. The movie features some teamwork, but there's a betrayal close at hand. And while Ann is selfless and helpful and can take care of herself, she's also easily manipulated.
