Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this indie drama stars Twilight's Kristen Stewart as a teenage stripper -- not exactly an ideal role model for her younger fans. Just as well, then, that not too many of them are likely to be drawn to this mature, often wrenching story about how a couple copes after the death of their daughter. Their marriage is in disarray, their hearts broken; at times, it's very difficult to watch. Expect plenty of swearing (including "f--k," "s--t," and more) and some graphic discussions about sex, as well as a few scenes that include smoking, drinking, and drug use (some by a teen).
A man has an affair; he and his lover are shown in the shadows snuggling under covers. A stripper/prostitute offers to perform certain acts for a client in the VIP room of her club; she's shown straddling him, but he declines to engage in anything else. She also discusses working in a peep show, what customers do there, and what sexual acts she will and won't do. A woman's bare behind is shown.
A woman runs over a garbage can and hits a pole in her own driveway. A prostitute talks about a violent encounter but is dissuaded from seeking revenge.
"Bulls--t," "s--t," "p---y," "f--k nuts," "cooters" -- the language runs the entire gamut. A teenager swears a lot; another character points this out and even fines her for it.
The movie sends the message that grief can make people do unexpected things; in this case, Doug decides to sell his successful business and abandons his wife to help out a teenage prostitute who reminds him of his dead daughter. His choices don't always make sense, but they seem to make him feel better, at least at first.
