When they say, "check references," is this what they mean?

This can be considered a literary blog only in the way the proverbial infinite number of monkeys with typewriters can be considered a literary endeavor, so we'll be the first to admit we're not intimately familiar with the works of D.H. Lawrence, but the following note, found at the tail of an A.O. Scott New York Times review of the film "Starting Out in the Evening," does seem excessively cautious (italics in the original):

"Starting Out in the Evening" is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). It has some profanity, sexual situations and references to the work of D. H. Lawrence.

Literary warning gripes aside, the film sounds like a treat for Lauren Ambrose fans, of which group this blogger is a member. From the review:

Ms. Ambrose is self-assured enough to hold her own with Mr. Langella and Ms. Taylor...and brave enough to show the vain, insecure, unformed aspects of Heather’s personality. The character’s evident immaturity shows that the actress is wise beyond her years.
