What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Paranoia is a corporate espionage thriller. There are no fights or blood, but characters are involved in plenty of tense chases and threats. One character is deliberately run over by a car, but he survives and is shown later with only a leg brace and a scratch on his cheek. The main character is shown shirtless as often as possible and has implied sex with a female character, but there's no actual nudity. As for language, "f--k" is said once, and "s--t" is used a couple of times. Characters are shown drinking socially throughout the movie, though they're rarely drunk. One character smokes a cigar. Some teen girls may want to ogle Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth, but otherwise there's not much worth seeing here.
- Families can talk about the "selling your soul to the devil" theme. How classic is this story? What does it really mean? What other ways can it be applied?
- How relevant is Paranoia's concept about getting a job and becoming successful? Does hard work pay off? Or are stealing and backstabbing required?
- Why is drinking such a part of this corporate world?
- Why does the movie show the main character shirtless so often? What does this say about male body image?
