RUTH & ALEX is a US drama about a long-married couple who decide they might need to sell the home they've shared for over 40 years.

Language

There is a single use of strong language ('f**k'), directed in anger by an annoyed woman. Milder bad language includes 'prick', 'bullshit', 'son of a bitch', 'crap' and 'shit'.

Other issues include some natural breast nudity in a painting of a young woman whose leg is raised to mask her groin. In a flashback scene, the painting of the portrait is shown with only the woman's bare back and part of the side of her breast visible.

There are some mild sex references as a man jokes that his home smells like a 'whore house' when an estate agent has used perfume there. A young couple also flirt and the woman jokes that it's the first time a man has been more interested in removing her glasses than her clothes.

There's an oblique drug reference when a woman asks if she can put the plants she grows 'for medicinal reasons' on the roof. It's implied that she means marijuana but the issue is never mentioned again.
