Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this excellent indie dramedy offers lots of wisdom, examining characters caught at the crossroads of mid-life through clear lenses that are refreshingly unburdened by clich├ęs. Yes, there's plenty of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," etc.) and some mature themes -- including a mother's drug addiction, which sends her teenage boy adrift, hungering for structure and safety. But there are also plenty of stand-up characters who, despite their flaws, make you believe in a world of hope and optimism.

Sexual Content

Some sexual innuendo.

Violence

A teenage boy shoves another; he also yells at an adult. Adults yell and argue.

Language

Language includes several uses of "f--k," plus "s--t" (uttered by a child at one point), "hell," "damn," "ass," "a--hole," "crap," "goddamn," "oh my God," and more.

Social Behavior

The movie's main message is that even though the best intentioned among us can make bad decisions, those decisions can be undone by good intentions and -- better yet -- honest follow-through. Also, inspiration comes from surprising sources.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character is a former addict in the early stages of recovery. Some social drinking.
