Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that most teens probably won't be interested in this indie drama about adult siblings brought together by their dying mother. Her death leads to some sad scenes, and she appears increasingly pained and sick (at one point, unable to eat, she sits down to dinner with her family, chews spare ribs, and spits out the food -- then her kids follow suit to make her feel better). Tense scenes among the siblings show their jealousies and resentments. Characters discuss painkilling drugs, and one son smokes a joint. Language includes several uses of "f--k," plus "s--t" and "damn."

Sexual Content

Dying mother's body is ravaged by cancer, so she's visibly weaker, pale, and sad.

Social Behavior

Siblings argue over how to handle their mother's imminent death; eventually, everyone comes together. Cast is uniformly white except for a single African-American character, who's a nurse.
