A DISTINCT SOCIETY                      

SYNOPSIS:  A quiet library that sits on the border between the U.S. and Canada becomes the convenient meeting place for five people from around the world, who, due to restrictions on travel, are not able to easily and freely meet otherwise. Manon, the dedicated librarian, navigates the current border regulations with her own sense of right and wrong.   

LANGUAGE: The characters speak in contemporary style, often invoking a variety of swears and exclamatory oaths that some patrons might find discomfiting.

SMOKING AND DRINKING: There is a small amount of smoking and drinking. 

SEX: None.

VIOLENCE: There are tense moments as the border patrol challenges the events in the library and a prop gun is used.

FOR WHICH AUDIENCES?:  A Distinct Society contains mature subject matter and is suitable for teens with parental supervision. 

RATING: If A Distinct Society were a movie, it would be rated “R” for language.
