Ashley Judd stars as a successful attorney whose husband (James Caviezel) is accused of war crimes and is arrested. She is shocked to find out that he has hidden his past as a classified military operative from her, but she suspects a cover-up and so decides to represent him at his court-martial, with the help of a retired lawyer (Morgan Freeman) who's familiar with the military justice system. Also with Amanda Peet and Adam Scott. [1:55]
SEX/NUDITY 5 - A man and woman kiss passionately, lie back on a sofa while they take each other's clothes off and begin to have sex. A man sits and a woman (in a tight-fitting, cleavage-revealing outfit) stands behind him and another (also in a tight-fitting, cleavage- revealing outfit) kneels in front of him and they begin to caress and kiss him; later we see one of the women lying on a bed covered by a blanket. A strip club scene shows women in thongs and bikini tops exposing bare buttocks and cleavage. A man and woman kiss and walk along a street embracing each other (she grabs his buttocks). A man and woman kiss and hug a couple of times, and a man flirts with and makes suggestive remarks to his wife. A man opens his door, bare-chested, and a woman comes up behind him wearing panties and his jacket (it is suggested that they have had sex). There are a couple of conversations about ovulation and pregnancy (a couple is trying to get pregnant). There are some discussions of a rape case (the descriptions are not detailed). A woman is shown in her panties and tank top while a man admires her. A man is seen bare-chested when he gets out of bed to investigate a noise, and the woman is shown in her short nightgown. A man is shown in his underwear (T-shirt
and boxers). Women are shown in evening gowns that expose bare shoulders, backs and cleavage. Military personnel hoot at a woman as she jogs by.
VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - We see several scenes of what we are told is an attack on a village in El Salvador in 1988: the scenes show soldiers gunning down women, children (we see one boy thrown to the ground), elderly men and we see bodies with bloody bullet holes. A man is shot and we see a spurt of blood through his shirt as he falls to the floor; the wounded man and the shooter fight over the gun; they punch, kick, shove each other and they fight with planks and a wrench. A man holds a man in a chokehold, the man gasps and falls limp to the ground and we see blood pouring from his mouth. A car is sprayed with oil, slips along the road, falls off the road and rolls into water (we see the driver in a hospital bed later, and hear that she lost her baby, and see the passenger in a neck brace). A man is dragged out of a bar, kicked and punched by several men (we see him being patched up later with some blood). Two men fight with punches, kicks and shoving. A woman is hit on the head, she falls onto a table and then lands on the floor (we see her bruised eye and face later) and a man holds a gun to her head. There are several discussions in varying detail of villagers having been
shot. We see people in a café, watch a bomb being thrown inside and see the explosion throw bodies through the air (we see the aftermath with bloody corpses on the ground; this scene is shown several times). A woman talks about her husband having been murdered. We see an explosion and hear that a man was wounded when a window broke and he was hit in the eye. A man grabs a woman's face and she hits him in the head with a glass. A woman threatens a man with a gun. Two people walk along a street, there's a bright flash and they are both tackled to the ground by men with guns drawn. Two people crash through a plate-glass window and run into the dark. A man punches a wall and tears up a bed in frustration. Two women (they're prostitutes) fight over a man. There are a few tense scenes when a woman thinks she's in danger: in one scene she thinks she's being chased by a truck; in another, as she approaches her house a man gets out of a car and comes up to her; and in another a man drives her to a deserted field and she thinks he's going to kill her. There are some discussions of a rape case (not much detail). A woman throws a drink in a man's face and yells at him. There are a couple of discussions of a woman having had a miscarriage.
