Competing for the approval of her parents -- a professor of Jewish mysticism (Richard Gere) and a dedicated scientist (Juliette Binoche) -- 11-year-old Eliza Naumann (Flora Cross) is used to appearing ordinary.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this drama focuses on a family's gradual, difficult breakdown. It includes several tense family scenes, one harsh argument between father and son (yelling and using the f-word), and the revelation of the mother's mental illness (she's having flashbacks to the harrowing sight of her parents' fatal car crash, and stealing objects from houses she can reach by car and by foot). A young spelling prodigy comes to see not only how words are spelled, but also how to forgive and help her fragile family.

Sexual Content

Passionate sex scene between parents.

Violence

Flashbacks of car accident that left one character's parents dead (no bodies, but disturbing fragments of visual/emotional trauma).

Language

Brief strong language by father and teenaged son during an argument (f-word).

Social Behavior

Family grapples with loss of emotional closeness and spiritual direction; a troubled mother becomes a thief; a father becomes obsessed with his young daughter's capacity to "connect with God."

Consumerism
