Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this isn't the typical sweet Sandra Bullock film. Sandra's character Gwen is an alcoholic undergoing rehab. The film includes themes of addiction, suicide, loss, self-hatred and infidelity. Gwen's behavior is reprehensible before she commits herself to getting better. The most upsetting is the suicide death of a main character that Gwen could have helped prevent. Two rehab residents are seen (briefly) in the midst of sexual encounters, but there is no nudity.
