Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this dreamy drama -- which depicts a fisherman with a fragile grip on his sobriety who is caring for his ailing child -- features some pretty intense subject matter involving big issues like happiness, love, and redemption that are not tween or young teen territory. An elementary-school-aged child is a central character, and she is wise beyond her years and encounters unfortunate situations. Her mother drinks constantly, and though she clearly cares for her daughter, she doesn't seem to have any intention of stopping. There are just a few swear words ("s--t" and "f--k") and a disturbing scene where a gunman takes aim at a character. But the film also has a message of hope and redemption.

Sexual Content

A woman's breasts and pubic area is visible through clothes she wears while she's swimming. She's also seen in her underwear. She and another character are shown making love; no body parts are seen, and they're filmed primarily in the shadows.

Violence

Guys with guns hunt down one character, ready to kill if they have to. Men scuffle and throw punches. A mother drives drunk, her child in the backseat.

Language

"F--k" and "s--t" are used sparingly -- once by a child. We also hear "bastard."

Social Behavior

Happiness doesn't come easy, and the process of getting there can be difficult, especially if you're saddled with baggage, the film seems to say. While characters struggle and don't always make good choices, the movie ultimately comes down on the side of hope and redemption.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of drinking, even around kids. In fact, one character drives drunk while her child is in the car. A man falls off the wagon, hard.
