Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this serious melodrama centers on the aftermath of a hit-and-run accident that kills a 10-year-old boy. His parents grieve in a realistic, disturbing-to-watch manner, and the child's lifeless body is shown on the road at least three times. The man responsible for the accident also grieves -- at some points by drinking heavily -- as he comes to grips with what he has done. There's also a confrontation at gunpoint between the two protagonists. With such upsetting themes (as well as strong language, including "f--k"), the film is iffy for kids and young teens.

Sexual Content

Grace and Ethan kiss and start to fool around in bed; they embrace in several scenes.

Violence

Extremely disturbing image of a dead child face down in the street. Two men have a violent confrontation at gunpoint; a grieving mom screams and sobs, as does a little girl.

Language

Grief and anger are expressed in strong language: "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "hell" "goddamn," etc.

Social Behavior

Dwight leaves the scene of his crime and doesn't turn himself in; Ethan fuels his grief with thoughts of revenge, which lead him to attempt murder.

Consumerism

Boston Red Sox memorabilia and clothes, Mrs. Meyer's soap, Ford Explorer, Volvo, Toyota Prius.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Depressed, Dwight drinks beer and hard liquor in a few scenes.
