I can't review the entire movie but I can review the first two minutes. Slow bottom to top pan of a totally naked woman in a porn mag. Slow bottom to top pan of a real life totally naked, beaten, bloodied woman (not sure who the woman was to the plot). That was enough for me to realize I probably was not the target audience for this film.

Felipe disagreed with the rating and said:
Holly, Ryan Gosling's daughter, was talking to a porn star in the party scene. The porn star told her about how she found this porn producer "doing anal and stuff" with his alleged sister.

This movie passes the Bechdel test due to (brief) conversations between Holly and Amelia, Janet, and Tally that are not about a man. Do NOT make the mistake of thinking that this makes this film in any way respectful of women.
