Greta is a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village, only to discover that the family's 8-year-old is a life-sized doll that the parents care for just like a real boy, as a way to cope with the death of their actual son 20 years prior. After violating a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring Greta's worst nightmare to life, leading her to believe that the doll is actually alive.
|nudity||A couple starts to kiss, leading to the bed, man touches the woman's back, when they are interrupted by a noise. Fully-dressed. A woman walks around in her underwear. A woman takes a shower, her thighs and shoulders are shown.|
|violence||The film contains a few scenes of violence. "Get Out" is written on a wall with rat blood. The blood drips on a character's face. In a stronger scene, the protagonist stabs a man in the abdomen with a screwdriver and twists it to drive it in deeper. In another scene, a man stabs another man in the neck with a piece of broken glass. These scenes contain some depiction of bloodshed and infliction of pain, but the details of the injuries are not shown. Otherwise, the film is rather bloodless.|
|profanity||A few shits and SOBs towards the end. "Jesus Christ" and its derivatives are used a few times. Relatively mild throughout: PG-level language|
|alcohol||Red wine is consumed. A character tells a story of a man getting drunk after the death of his son.|
|frightening||This film revolves around a young woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote village to supervise a child that is actually a life-sized porcelain doll. The parents treat the doll like a real boy to cope with the death of their son and they give her a list of rules that she has to follow strictly. This may prove mildly distressing to viewers. When the protagonist ignores the rules, disturbing things begin to happen and she becomes convinced that the doll may be alive. A few jump scares throughout, though several are predictable: a pause and then a loud noise with a shocking image (i.e. flickering words, a ghost hand, a silhouette in the attic, a doll quickly moving its head, etc.) The effects of physical abuse and loss of children are major themes in the film. These may be triggers for some people. People commit suicide by drowning. A porcelain doll is smashed. MPAA/USA - Rated PG-13 for violence and terror, and for some thematic material. BBFC/UK - Rated 15 (strong sustained threat, violence).|
