Higher Learning | 1995 | R | - 5.7.9

Drama charting social, racial and cultural differences on a large state college campus.

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Three sex scenes, where we see bare buttocks. Homosexuality and sexual identity are explored -- one of the sex scenes implies a lesbian relationship, including kissing between two women. Birth control is also a topic.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - One attempted rape scene in which a woman asks a man to stop because he is not wearing a condom; he refuses and becomes violent. Many fist fight scenes in which jaws, noses and eyes are bloodied. Some display and waving around of guns. One very violent scene in which a character shoots into a crowd, killing two people. One victim is seen covered in blood and blood spurts from her mouth as she dies. One scene in which a character is beaten and kicked by campus police.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
