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."
Dying mother's body is ravaged by cancer, so she's visibly weaker, pale, and sad.
Profanity includes several uses of "f--k," as well as "s--t," "damn," and "bitch."
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.
