Lovely and Amazing
Source: Catholic News Service
Glib comedy-drama which follows the lives of a divorced mother (Brenda Blethyn) and her three daughters -- a struggling artist (Catherine Keener) stuck in a faithless marriage, an aspiring actress (Emily Mortimer), and an adopted African-American 8-year-old (Ravin Goodwin) -- as they try to make sense of their lives and come to terms with their shared obsessions. Writer-director Nicole Holofcener's mostly engaging film uses a light touch to comment on female insecurities and how similar obsessions can dominate a family; however, the characters' choices to improve their lives can be off-putting. Extramarital affairs, a couple of implied sexual encounters including one with a minor, full frontal nudity and intermittent rough language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
