Polish Wedding | 1998 | PG-13 | - 6.2.5

A young Polish woman (Claire Danes) still living with her big family discovers she's pregnant after being chosen to lead her church's Procession of the Virgin. Also with Lena Olin, Gabriel Byrne, Adam Trese, Mili Avital, Daniel LaPaine, Rade Serbedzija, Ramsey Krull and Steven Petrarca. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Sexual innuendo and several passionate kisses. We see a man's hand running up a woman's bare inner thigh and under her dress, then the camera quickly pans to the woman's smiling face. A woman unbuttons a man's shirt, unbuckles his belt and unbuttons her shirt; we later see him lying on top of her, obviously after having intercourse (they're both shirtless but her arms cover her breasts). A woman pulls a man onto the floor, straddles him, lifts up his shirt and rubs his torso; the man then flips on top of her and the scene ends. A man unbuttons a woman's dress (we see most of her bra), kisses her neck and runs his hand over her breast; we later see them in robes and he briefly caresses her bare leg, which is propped on his shoulder. A clothed man lies on top of a clothed woman and they kiss passionately; the scene ends but it's implied that they have intercourse. We see a woman in her bra and slip and a woman in her bra while getting dressed. We see some shirtless men and a woman in several cleavage-revealing tops. We see many nude and bare-breasted women in paintings during the opening credits.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A group of people wielding hockey sticks kick in a house's door; we later see them dragging a man out of the house and threatening to beat him (the scene is more comical than dramatic). Twice, a man hits the back of a boy's head. A woman slaps a boy and a woman shakes another woman. A man chases a woman and pulls her to the ground; he straddles her and holds her down for a few seconds before getting up. A man tries to pull a woman down a flight of steps.

LANGUAGE 5 - 2 F-words, a couple scatological references and mild obscenities and a few insults. Two obscene finger gestures.

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.
