The film contains two sexual scenes.
In the first scene, the male protagonist stumbles upon a man having sex with a woman against her wishes, while in the second scene, a couple is seen engaging in sex at a party.
The sexual activity portrayed is justified by context, infrequent and without strong detail.
The film also contains various scenes of nudity as seen when the male protagonist lies on top of, beside his bare-breasted wife while kissing her in bed, as well as a scene at a spa featuring male full-frontal nudity.

The only thing wrong with this movie is the plot. Or rather, now that I found out it's based on a popular novel, the script.
It's got a wonderful cast and technically it's fantastic. Direction, cinematography, music, it's all good. Actor performances are above average as well.
The script however is magnitudes of bad. Makes no sense whatsoever. There's no credible reasoning behind any of the actions taking place. It feels like it was written by a 5 year old. And the ending felt so abrupt and rushed that literally had me staring at the screen with my mouth open.
I don't know what to say. Obviously something went terribly wrong with the adaptation. Maybe there's a director's cut that's at least twice as long that would make some sense to the viewer. As it stands now though it's an unwatchable abomination.
