Drama Musical - This is a Spanish language biopic of the controversial Mexican rock

themes such as sexual abuse make this very much not for kids.
PROFANITY: 10 F-words; 4 S-words; 1 GD. SEX/NUDITY: Sex with nudity, including orgies and with underage girls. VIOLENCE: Hits and bloody cuts. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Some raunchy comic situations.
