Disjointed study of a 1973 Massachusetts family grieving the death of a murdered daughter and exploring the entangling relationship binding the girl's fiance (Jake Gyllenhaal) and her parents (Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon). Writer-director Brad Silberling's drama offers moments of honest emotion and even humor but strong performances are mired by competing subplots, a plodding narrative and contrived resolutions. An implied, shadowy sexual encounter, sporadic profanity and instance of rough language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
