Lonesome Jim | 2005 | R | - 6.3.5

Casey Affleck stars as Jim, a 28-year old who reluctantly moves back with his parents in a small Indiana town, after having failed to make a life of his own. Dealing with hopelessness and several dysfunctional characters, he meets a local beauty (Liv Tyler) and becomes a father-figure to her son. Also Mary Kay Place, Kevin Corrigan and Seymour Cassel. Directed by Steve Buscemi. [1:27]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A man and a woman have sex: we see thrusting and hear moaning and see bare legs, and they are interrupted by three children entering the room.
 A woman lies back in bed, takes off her pants, asks a man if he has protection, we hear her putting a condom on him, the man climbs on top of her, they kiss briefly and he climaxes.
 A man watches a pornographic video and his mother comes into the room (we hear two women moaning in the movie, and see the bare back and panties of one of them).
 A man urinates in a toilet (we see his bare buttocks) and a young girl walks in asking what he is doing. A man sits in a bathtub and covers his crotch when his mother comes in the room and gives him a hug (we see his bare chest, abdomen and thighs). A man pulls down his shorts so that he can urinate in a cup (nothing is visible).
 A man and a woman kiss. A man and a woman flirt, and he asks her out on a date.
 There is a comment made about forced prison sex. A man makes a sexual remark about a woman and asks a man if he has sex with her. A man talks to another man about how to control ejaculation and talks about paying for sex. A woman talks about the size of a man's endowment.
 A man buys wine coolers and sets up a bed (pillows and blankets) in the back of a van.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man is pulled off his motorbike and chased on foot by police.
 We hear that a man was in a car accident and in a coma (we see him bandaged and with a neck brace). A man collapses (he says from dehydration) and sobs.

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.
